Cover:
The cover is designed
taking a key architectural
feature of the Franco
German Embassy
building in Dhaka,
designed by SPA Design.
The spinal feature is an
architectural fulcrum and
a structural achievement
that holds the otherwise
orthogonal geometric
built forms and textures.
The cover abstracts this
into a series of linear and
plate-like elements
bringing its geometric
tectonic to the fore.
