[2009 // book design]
Cairoscape was an exhibition of about 20 Egyptian artists in Berlin. The main subject of the exhibition was the cityscape of Cairo which is why we decided to create a strong city-like grid. We filled the grid with different quite irregular patterns. The result is a perplexing layout which grid can be adopted to various sizes and purposes.
The design represents the cityscape of Cairo in a graphical way: a huge city which fits into a grid when being viewed from far away – the closer you get the livelier it becomes.
