A publication made up of six books for Rainer Schmidt Landschaftsarchitekten + Stadtplaner, published by Birkhäuser Verlag.
The book project devotes itself to the central themes of Schmidt’s work, documents around 40 selected projects and includes several essays on landscape architecture and urban planning.
The individual books are each variants of the B series format and have a consistent 192 page range. Typography and composition are scaled proportionally to the format of each book.
The experimental handling of the medium changes the interaction with the respective formats and achieves a differentiated discussion of the corresponding contents.
Both the product and graphic design reference the conceptual elements of landscape architecture. They form an autonomous layer of the design creating a neutral platform for the different contents.
