Editorial conditions and design rules have changed now that the book shares its formerly unique media position with new and challenging offers by digital media. The lecture will introduce the potentials of the book as a medium for the communication of architecture and will analyse the structural and functional differences between analogue and digital media and their abilities and limits in the expression and communication of architectural atmosphere.
