This bilingual publication in English and Japanese presents recent Japanese architectural projects for which graphic design plays the leading role. It presents the frequently award-winning designs of Hiromura Masaaki, a Japanese designer who made a name for himself with innovative projects which combine graphic design and architecture. The projects are showcased and discussed in four sections: System – information design to clarify the structure of buildings, Graphysm – the use of typography in spaces to clarify the purpose of the space, Presentation – graphic design for exhibitions and installations, and Visual Identity – creating a visual identity for a space or building. To emphasize the importance of multidisciplinary teams in creating graphics for spaces, author and designer Hiromura Masaaki interviews professionals who collaborated on various projects, for example, an architect, a scientist, an artist and a photographer. Much of this concerns ‘signing?, a subject long deserving attention. Space Graphysm fills the gap perfectly, providing readers versed in architecture as well as graphic and information designers with a wealth of innovative and inspirational projects.
