This architecture book, I’ve designed in 2007, was my first architectural book I did as an independent designer. I met, every weeks almost during more then a year Marcel Meili, to talk about the layout of the book, the sequence of images, the dramatic and the density of certain photographs, drawings, sketches. He was always animating the discussion, always bringing content in the center of the debate, always listening and so curious about my design and our methodology. He loved to talk about photography, himself he always said he wish he would have been a photographer. His images were strong and he cares often more about the outcome of pictures as the architecture behind. He was a father, an intellectual father, became a friend. I will miss him so much. But for ever his mind, his sharp spirit, and his way of looking at things will influence my present and future books.
