William SW Lim books (2012-2016)


A play of typography and illustrations was employed to enliven each of these books.

Outside of his architectural practice, William S. W. Lim was one of the most important theorists and educators in Singapore. We were commissioned to design a series of books by him under his think tank Asian urban Lab. This series comprised of five books on urban design that were published from 2009-2016, one of which presents William Lim’s seminal theory on Incomplete Urbanism. In order to make an interesting design without straying from the subject matter, we utilised details like colour and typography to differentiate the book.
