Columbia Abstract 07/08

​Columbia University asked the studio to design their annual publication, Abstract, a yearbook for the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation.

The content is divided into three different color-coded books which insert into each other to form their own pyramid-shaped architecture. The smallest book contains only photos of staff and students, the middle book contains only text and the large book showcases all the student work. An extensive cross-reference systems directs users to related content between the books.
