Taking a closer look into the Summer Institute’s theme of “Absence,” we looked at how to properly show, through images and text, the full experience of the summer here in the architecture building at CUA. Like the theme, we found it appropriate that the journal would be one of minimalism. We found it fundamental that it be simple and straight to the point, leaving room for further individual thought. Absence is found from the void of what has been created making for a more diverse space. In the journal, we laid out the text thinking of the absent space that would be created between the text and the images, creating diverse spreads throughout the journal. The thought of making the text sit on the page, as elegantly as each image, was one of our ways of highlighting the text and giving it importance.

SUMMER 2013 ABSENCE

If we had to give one importance over all others, it would be to give each reader the full experience of the summer. We did this by immersing the reader into the transcription of every lecture that was held over the course of the summer. Along with the lectures we sprinkled in visual shots from student action and work that was displayed over the course of the summer. Less is always more, which goes perfectly with the summer’s theme and our choice of a white backdrop and soft grey focus of the text with simply placed images dispersed throughout the journal. We hope you enjoy the work and feel inspired to become a part of what is done here at the School of Architecture and Planning at The Catholic University of America over the summer.
