Brigada:
Croatia
The architects and designers of Croatia’s Brigada
agency designed a striking and economical solution
to restore Zagreb’s Zavrtnica business center.
What’s interesting is that an entire block with
four structures was treated as a whole. The design
team usedtypotecture to minimize refurbishing
costs and create a fresh, new look to the existing
structures.
It’s certainly a brave and very bold
move to cover large buildings in type.
It may not be to everyone’s taste, but
it is a really interesting concept. And
leaves one asking, “Why not?”
A closer look
Throwing type into total disarray,
with characters balancing
awkwardly on top of one another is an
interesting approach to typography,
but making the strange imbalance
work on structures of this size makes
the typography that much more
impressive.
