The Pavilions of Honour

Through a glass door you can enter the gigantic roof terrace. There you will find all kinds of separate structures that together form the Pavilions of Honour. The Palace of Typographic Masonry asked several contemporary designers to add a pavilion for this place. Usually such a pavilion highlights a celebrated hero or a forgotten designer, think of examples like Hendrik Wijdeveld, Sister Corita Kent or Ed Fella. But there are also pavilions not dedicated one author or historical figure, but to a genre or conventions, like Metahaven's Subititle Pavilion. Designers draw inspiration from the achievements of predecessors and visionaries, from forgotten norms and unwritten rules prevailing within the craft. Not only does the future hold infinite possibilities, so does the past - and perhaps even more than we realize.
