To design the book Pesmes. Art de construire et engagement territorial by Luc Boegly and Émeline Curien, the French graphic design studio Building Paris used Clément Le Tulle-Neyret’s Immortel Infra typeface.

The book is based on the architecture seminar organised by Avenir Radieux and directed by Bernard Quirot in Pesmes since 2015. Students, architects, critics and invited historians experiment with the project as a tool for knowledge and transformation of the territory, where exchanges, debates and critical and prospective views are nourished. A common concern emerges: to link architecture, considered as an act of building, with a territorial commitment understood in its material as well as spatial, economic and cultural dimensions. Through interviews conducted by Émeline Curien with several of these contributors, the book explores the multiple forms of this specific clutch and reveals its practical, theoretical, political and prospective aspects. Through Luc Boegly’s photographic dialogue with the village of Pesmes, the book opens a meditation on the historicity of these issues and on the poetry of the near and distant peripheries of European metropolises and their worrying state.

With photographs from Luc Boegly, 10 interviews lead by Émeline Curien, with Jean-Patrick Fortin, Françoise Fromonot, Giacomo Guidotti, Pierre Hebbelinck, José Ignacio Linazasoro, Jacques Lucan, Stefano Moor, Gilles Perraudin, Bernard Quirot, Vincent Rapin, Émilien Robin, Maria Saiz, Simon Teyssou

The book has 168 pages and measures 23×27 cm. It comes in two hardcover versions, with red and blue covers, French text, 70 color pictures and 68 monochrome images. Printed by Musumeci in Quart, Italy, and published by Building Books together with Avenir Radieux.
