Archigraphia Redux

A beautifully curated collection
of the best of environmental graphic design today, Archigraphia Redux is an essential reference for anyone interested in effective communications in the built environment.

Graphis is proud to announce the introduction of a new book by Richard Poulin, a renowned multiple Graphis Gold Award-winning designer, educator, and author, which pays homage to Archigraphia: Architectural and Environmental Graphics (Graphis, 1976) by Walter Herdeg (1908-1995), founder and editor of Graphis Magazine. The book is a new international survey of architectural, environmental, and experiential graphic design in the 21st century. Over 150 designers, architects, interior designers, landscape architects, and artists from over 40 countries are represented by their groundbreaking work throughout the book.

This volume, like the original, is organized into six chapters--Pictograms and Symbols, Vehicular Sign Systems, Visual Guidance and Wayfinding Systems, Building Fa ades and Storefronts, Supergraphics and Animated Surfaces, and Transportation and Vehicle Graphics. A new seventh chapter covers New Approaches and Digital Technologies. Each chapter includes an introductory essay by authorities on each subject covered--Tom Geismar (United States), Ronald Shakespear (Argentina), Alex Wood (United Kingdom), Masaaki Hiromura (Japan), Paula Scher (United States), Peter Knapp (United Kingdom), and Nik Hafermaas (United States). The high quality of projects assembled along with thoughtful commentaries by the most respected practitioners of the discipline ensures that Archigraphia Redux will be an essential entry in any design library.
