After helping our friends at Transsolar KlimaEngineering with organizing their 20th anniversary in form of a symposium we created the book Connect Ideas - Maximize Impact for them. The symposium should be an important part within the book, this was the target.

The book has no beginning and no end, you can start reading from either side. One side starts with an abstract of the symposium while the other side starts with the office's development over the past 20 years. Selected key projects form a transition in the middle part. The three parts are rotated 90 degrees each time.

Our interpretation of the timeline as an uninterrupted banner called for the japanese bookbinding where the body of the book is not sliced in single pages. The print sheet is only printed on the outer side and the inner side remains blank. This trick allows the timeline to continuously overlap from one page to the other.
