We started working for the Institute of Art and Design at Vienna University of Technology in 2003, designing the institute’s website and, over the following years, several of its publications. In this book, Klaus Zwerger portrays the wooden architecture of the Dong, an ethnic minority living in southern China. During prolonged stays in the region the author acquired a profound knowledge of the subject, creating an extensive photographic archive.
The publication includes numerous illustrations and sketch maps from the author’s archive.
In 2013 the publication received an award as one of Austria’s most beautifully designed books.
