In Some things..., Ronny Duquenne succeeds in translating into graphic form the young architectural firm’s way of thinking. Because dmvA approaches its projects as media for telling a story, the interactive design offers a stage for the theatre of life.

In the descriptions of completed, soon to be completed or never to be realized architectural projects, the margins are filled with shifting and mentality-changing ideas and references. Both the creator and the reader serve as scriptwriters, allowing the buildings to tell a different story time after time on the white pages within the predominantly yellow publication.

The book has the look-and-feel of a true collector’s item, and its form and content go far beyond traditional architectural monographs.

DmvA about the design: “Your senses. You don’t need anything more in order to experience and read Some thing, Some things, Some thinkings about dmvA. The three parts into which the content is divided, and the interactive margins, give the reader the freedom to trace his or her own trajectory in order to grasp what architecture ‘writes’. Thanks to graphic designer Ronny Duquenne, who has guided the concept from the very beginning of the collaborative process, this is a unique product that is quite different from the straighforward monographs that fill the shelves of today’s bookstores.”
