White Book Draft Submission

Hello Term 3,

I’ve been trying hard not to bite my tongue off and worked on the things I really wanted to get out of my way over the Easter break: The White Book (now including two sections: 1.Format Factory 2. Mnemosyne Atlas of Images), the Structure of the Website (I copied the open-source html for layout only from the Architect’s Journal) and a session of photographing models in the photostudio. Besides working on the content for the analogue and digital magazine, design development and white book,  I want to take a few hours to double check the text and the images of the book so that I can print the draft submission. Hopefully I will be able to print my personal scale ruler in time before the jury.

White Book_v1

Today I am setting up the structure for my White Book, which will include the Design Brief for the Factory of Formats (title still pending), the Instruction Manual for the production of format and the Code of Conduct for the people involved in the process of production and consumption. The paper format is currently set to A3 which can be cut to a square to potentially remove a sense of orientation. I want to pair up or replace the Table of Content with a “Table of Format”, which may play with Lists of Figures and Lists of Tables.
