as in the previous year, the annual edition was a double issue of january and february, 2013.
26 architecture projects were published and we designed a silver dust jacket, displaying 26 cutout bars revealing the other side of the paper.
when closed, the dust jacket seems to have 26 color rectangles, but it's actually the result of a continuum on the other side of the paper.
the dust jacket's back is a 69 x 69 cm calendar, with a circular degrade generating the 26 colors.
we were given carte blanche to create a homage to oscar niemeyer.
we made the homage the high point of the use of this issue's special color, silver, experimenting with its overlapping with black.
the unraveling of the cathedral happens in paralel to an excerpt of 'minha experiência em brasilia' from a 1961 text.
for the main section, containing the 26 projects, we divided the page in 26 lines and structured the layout of each project around a silver horizontal bar. each project has its title in a color, tying them again to the cover.
in here, a double-page spread of angelo bucci's project, when the silver bar is in the strip of the three upper modules of the grid, which are usually empty.
in felippe crescenti's project, the bar created another horizontal reference, a little below the line of the three upper modules.
in metro's project, the bar created a strip in the foot of the page, free from images and where all the text is found.
in the last project, designed by una, the bar closes the page, in counterpoint to the images found mainly in a central strip.
on the cover of the guides, more niemeyer: the copan building in são paulo...
... and praça dos 3 poderes in brasília.
for the launch’s invitation, we announced the issue's silver and the calendar's degrade.
here we see the invitation opened, in the format of a magazine.
and here the back, with another small reference to niemeyer: the marquise in ibirapuera park.
in 2014, the annual won the if communication design award and was selected as one of the highlights of adg biennial.
