The city of Groningen has become such a popular place to live, that more and more people can’t find a house there. The manifestation “Wonen in Stadshart” (“Living in the Heart of the City”), an initiative by the city of Groningen in collaboration with architectural centre Platform GRAS, wants to change that. For them we designed the WISH book to look like the type of red brick that you see all over Groningen.
The book presents fourteen inspiring plans for living in the city centre. The city of Groningen serves as a case. The book also contains several essays that place the theme of inner-city living in a broader perspective, as well as a photographic essay called ‘A wish come true’ that features recent successful examples of inner-city living in other cities. The book is a translation of the visual language we also used for the design of the exhibition and website of Wonen in Stadshart.
