Yiannis Koukis – works & projects is the second volume in a series of comprehensive monographs, produced by Reflection Architects’ Files, presenting the work of significant but less known Greek architects.
This monograph presents the work of architect Yiannis Koukis. Geometric processing, materiality, and a relationship with the surrounding landscape are the three main components that can be identified in his buildings, contributing to the primal, almost mystical dynamic of his work.
The cover design and the layout of the book highlight the special relationship his works have with the landscape. The cover photo is part of the architect’s archives. It depicts a building which appears to be a continuation of the landscape as well as inclusive of the human element.
For the cover and the appendix, a rough-to-the-touch, pulp eco-friendly paper in an earthly olive green tone was chosen in order to enhance the feeling of being in touch with nature while browsing through the book.
