Being Renzo Piano

Being Renzo Piano

Abitare

a graphical and interactive compilation of the known architect and designer Renzo Piano as framed from the lense of Abitare (the italian architecture magazine). the experience on the iPad is actually very elegant and diverse. it offers a number of different methods to interact with the content, multiple swipe variations, click and touch, zoom, and traditional scrolling. the imagery and content speaks for itself. This foray into the digital realm and specifically for iPad for a classical publication like Abitare is inspiring. expensive (£9 or $11) but well worth it.
