Designed for Bjarke Ingels Group, Hot To Cold is an odyssey of architectural adaptation. The book coincides with the Hot To Cold exhibition at the National Building Museum in Washington DC and presents 60 case studies in harsh climate conditions in order to examine where and how we live on our planet.
The cover was created by running a thermal simulation that mapped the word ‘HOT’ from the front cover to the ‘COLD’ on the back cover. The color coded borders on the pages then reinforce the geographical temperature of the buildings’ locations and give a framework for the content to live within, just like a building.
