  • deliberate use of softly translucent pages, staging see-through images as element of spread composition
  • the book brings together two artists – Gordon Matta-Clark and Anu Vahtra – whose practices are related to each other in many ways (even though born in different times and locations)
  • the book as well as the artists reflects spatial situations others are not even aware of
  • gaps, space, non-space, context

  • simply, yet beautifully designed volume with bold, yet softly embossed title
  • visual emphasis on the title sums up range of issues – among them – architecture beyond frames of a cultural institution
  • the institution, here the Canadian Centre for Architecture, speaks to the reader in first person, in large serif font, throughout the book, contrasting the otherwise modest, strictly on-grid sans-serif interviews, essays and images on thin, uncoated stock
  • it’s functional, approachable, unifying, yet lively in reflecting the many different voices speaking
