Pages – Architecture Practique - Archived Posted on 11/09/202009/13/2021 On the first few pages of the book, Pierre Bullet talks about geometry which is not surprising looking at the chosen page. No matter if one speaks French or not, one can see and assumably understand what subject he tried to bring across with his illustrations and short texts. Pierre Bullet is aware of how he positions the graphics into the description. In the upper half of the page, he strictly divides text and image by height, however describing the trapezoid the author chose to align text and image. After a couple of hundred pages, this page kind of amused me. “Architecture practice” is dominated by long and supposedly dry texts without any imagery or such. Page 267 breaks that approach and even had a relieving effect on me. The page is not jam-full with information but shows different types of I-don’t-know-what in a remarkably structured way. As we can see, here again, Pierre Bullet seems to like to play with the layout by adding framing to the illustrations. Interesting on this page is once again the framing. Even though one wouldn’t regard the calculations necessarily as imagery Pierre Bullet chose to frame it once again. Next to this structural characteristic, he does not level the heights horizontally to each other he prefers to use the given space on the page as effectively as possible. I also like the way he connects text and numbers but the use of brackets that spices up the whole page (even though I am very aware that this is not only an aesthetic feature but also serves a purpose).
