    Toko: Formations: New Practices in Australian Architecture

Toko's new Formations book highlights the best of Australian architecture

Posted by Ross Bryant,

Having first established themselves in Rotterdam in 2002, Toko have been permanently working out of Sydney since 2006, developing a portfolio of creative work for national and international clients. Their approach to design is informed by the rich heritage found in a Dutch-European culture of design and branding; exemplified by Formations: New Practices in Australian Architecture. The publication, that features first-rate design and dazzling visuals, was produced as part of the visual identity for the Australian exhibition at the 13th Venice International Biennale – the world’s most important architectural event.

Toko worked in collaboration with Anthony Burke and Gerard Reinmuth to produce Formations as a concept, logo and visual language to “create a true gesamtkunstwerk (total work of art) whereby the sum of all parts form one cohesive and considered solution.”
