Along other independent type foundries we have been invited to participate with a selection of our typefaces (mainly from the Apeloig Type Library) to the typographic Gutenberg car park in Strasbourg, France. Because it bears the name of Johannes Gutenberg, this car park is only about type.
As part of its rehabilitation, the Gutenberg car park in Strasbourg becomes a place dedicated to typography. This proposal, carried by Ruedi Baur and Dix—Milliards—Humains, won over the Parcus company, which manages this parking space located in the city center.
Thus, like an ascending chronological adventure, the three levels of the car park will tell the typographical story, from Gutenberg (level –3) to the latest contemporary creations (level –1). All the signage media (place numbering, pedestrian information, directions, ground markings, etc.) will be all available media to enhance and promote typographic creation.
