Architect Rem Koolhaas’ latest book Content has been art directed by graphic design consultancy Andandand. Impressed by its magazine work, Koolhaas approached the group directly. Andandand founder Simon Brown says the aim was to ‘produce a book with the throwaway feel of a magazine’. Creating Content involved constantly revising the mock-up design. ‘It takes at least three editions to get the right editorial feel, we only had one,’ adds Brown. Content, released this month, is published by Taschen.
