    Metz has no fewer than 41 listed monuments, 3 sites and 58 buildings listed as historical monuments. To better understand the diversity and specificity of this heritage, the Cultural Heritage Department has compiled a comprehensive inventory of the city's architectural treasures. This city town department has asked us to design a book highlighting these notable buildings. It gave us the opportunity for a greater freedom of action in order to design an elegant edition to do architecture of Metz justice. "Architecture in Metz: 100 bâtiments protégés" is a book, a guide and a scientific work at the same time. We designed a cover with a strong graphic impact, where the typography is ubiquitous. The cover area is used to present the contents of the book at first glance. Inside, folios show the principle of the general index: one number per building. The system is galvanised by a graphic play on the scale and placement of numbers. Finally, the ubiquitous yellow refers the reader to the dominant colour of the city, which was partly built using a yellow "Jaumont" stone. Read Less
