The Book : Pierre Koening

Pierre Koening an architect from California and is known for his steel, structural frame houses. He believes in the concepts of materials without ornamentation; in which I tried to implement in my design and the margins are increased in the second example to reference the high ceilings. Koening style is very structural, cooling and passive. In the exploration of the grid I'm trying to reflect his style. My typeface choices are Univers and Meredien and they were both made between the 1950-57 and Pierre Koening started his practice in 1952.
