SEISMIC ENGINEERING

PROJECT

Seismic Engineering

YEAR

2015

OBJECTIVE

For this project, I need to push the type boundaries even further and create my own type. Pick an architecture theme conference, event, tribute, or lecture series; either an existing one or invent one. Describe the event as a whole and determine 3 main topics to be discussed or featured, one topic for each poster. The topics will have to be related to each other in some way. Then interpret the topics with type that is created from scratch.

APPROACH

I did lots of research on architectural design in order to choose a topic that has the potential for making a set of strong architectural typography. After that, I found an interesting concept, seismic architecture, which is actually related to where I’ve been living right now. I extracted a few words as my theme of the posters, Sway, Haft and Firm. These three words are all related to seismic architecture and the technology they use.
