type3: koenig final

This book focuses on Koenig's structural elements in his architecture. Just as how Koenig exposes all the steel frames, the layout grid of the document is hinted at on each page with the moving bar that moves across the page in equal intervals. This, too, references how Koenig controls the "private" and "public" world, where the glass is opaque or clear. He also wanted residents to see an unobstructed view of the vast California landscape, which he does with clear glass framed by black steel frames. In regards to the use of the pilcrow and the page numbers, this speaks to Koenig's emphasis on efficiency of the use of space.
