What “TYPE” is Your Sky?

Posted in architecture, photography with tags , , on August 9, 2008 by anonimiss

Type the Sky by Lisa Rienermann is an alphabet formed of shapes buildings make against the sky when photographed from below. β€œIt began with the Q,” she says. β€œI was in a kind of courtyard in Barcelona. I looked upward and saw houses, the blue sky and clouds. The more I looked, I saw that the houses formed a letter Q.”

Loved it!!

Every large city is filled with sights and sounds and lots and lots of words. But do we ever looked at the city itself? At the shapes created by wood, concrete, metal and paint? A keen eye and a little inspiration are all it takes to discover a hidden alphabet among the architecture of a bustling metropolis.

I really liked this kids’ ABC book by Zoran Milich that I think even adults would enjoy. Very imaginative and beautifully executed…..
