It is a common and simple task to design an authorial alphabet. However, this assignment differs significantly with its clear definition and functional relationship to an outstanding architect’s work. The newly-emerged alphabet is thus a typographical study within a firm framework. The letters might be used for division of picture books, catalogues or posters. The typeface serves not only as a reference to architectural models, but leads up to the essence of architectural work, to work principles of selected personalities.

This authorial alphabet is inspired by work of
mad architects.
