Perpetual Dublin

I began this project by wanting to research Brutalism through studying the logistics of how brutalist social housing projects emerged and collapsed. I then began questioning why it needed to emerge, and why it did.
With Dublin’s architectural history being so prevalent, I wanted to primarily conduct research based on our city. I decided to create a book of factual evidence and philosophical iteration of past and present situations that might determine Dublin's future as a city. I decided to utilise this book to give citizen’s voices a place to dwell, rather than subside to falling on deaf ears. With the topics of my book vastly talking about uncertainty and imbalance, I wanted to create typefaces that represented such characteristics.
