Architecture and Comics

The exhibition was held at the National Museum – Architecture, and it showed how architects use comic strips to create their own works, collaborate with other professionals, communicate their ideas and concepts, and convey architectural criticism.

We wanted to balance the characteristics of architecture and comic-books equally. The comic book grid representing the structure of architecture, and cartoons through the perspective and characteristic dots taken from cartoon-strip printing. In smaller advertisements for the exhibition we also included exhibitors work to further emphasise the comic-books featured in the exhibit. This thinking was also reflected in the typeface, chosen for its classic structured grotesque yet friendly, approachable and slightly organic forms.
