Pathologies is the summary of one and a half year of investigations about book collections and personal libraries. This research began with the matter of the impact of a book cover on its inclusion inside of a collection. Then this investigation carried on with a thorough review of the book cover’s design for great classical collections. Finally this study focused on the act of collecting. How do book lovers behave? What are their habits? This dissertation introduces 13 profiles, halfway between fiction and reality, which illustrate the quirks and disorders of these collectors.

The aim of this project was to find a personal way to communicate a specific type of architecture. As I am a huge fan of Netherlands, I decided to work on the housing developed in Vinex spaces. Vinex is a town-planning policy created at the end of the 80’s in order to build new living areas fastly. Unlike other countries Netherlands tend to build single houses instead of block of flats. For the development I rapidly became fascinated by the way streets and houses are built in Netherlands. I spent hours looking at google maps and streetview because everything from above as well as from the street is so well constructed. The main inspiration for this project was the amazing book "Vinex Atlas" designed by Joost Grootens. The text in my edition actually comes from it. In addition I create a small colour chart which represents a mix of colours of brick as well as flower.
