Points of view in architecture.

The db is the oldest architecture journal in Germany and is one of the most important addresses among architecture titles. It filters the relevant topics of the building industry, provides background knowledge, critically examines, takes a stand and thus makes a significant contribution to the well-founded discussion of architecture.

From 2000-2004 I was able to continue the appearance that Anton Stankowski and Otl Aicher shaped through their own ideas. The well thought-out use of white space, clear compositions and an exciting dramaturgy were my values, which I pursued passionately for four years in 48 issues.

Detailed discussions of the articles with the editorial staff for a better understanding of the contents were a matter of course. Besides the design of the db, I was also responsible for other tasks such as advertising and books. With the sale of the magazine publishing house I left the editorial office and took an offer in Beijing.
