WAA included in the 2019 'Best Dutch Book Design' exhibition in Amsterdam

As of 3 October 2020, the 2019 'Best Dutch Book Designs' are on exhibit at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, representing the most distinguished books made in the Netherlands during 2019. Un-Conscious-City, designed by Mainstudio and published by Actar, was chosen as one of the 33 books. So states the jury report: ‘This book presents architect Wiel Arets’ kaleidoscopic vision of the future of the modern metropolis and the often unconscious, collective human choices that color, drive, and transform life in this environment… [This is an] intelligent book; designed through and through. Bravo!’ The book also contains photographs taken by Arets in Tokyo. The literary award is one of the most time-honored of its type within Europe, and recognizes books based off the aspects of, ‘design, concept, quality in terms of material and finishing, level of innovation, and timeliness.’
