The Best of BP&O – September 2017

September’s highlights included Lundgren+Lindqvist’s work on Daniel Götesson’s art book Ekta Sketchbooks Vol. I–III and Bond’s visual identity for Finish student union Sakki. BP&O also took a Hands On look at Snøhetta’s work on the Vestre anniversary book Folk+Form.
