A cage of one’s own

Communication Arts selected Elixir’s logo for Castor Architecture for their 2008 Design Annual. CA received almost 8,500 entries, selecting only 240 for pub­li­ca­tion (including 16 trade­marks). Elixir also designed the sta­tionery system and website.

Prior to starting his prac­tice, Daniel Castor spent time in Rome, making many ana­lyt­ical draw­ings of Bramante’s Tempietto — many of them sug­ges­tive of the bird­cages he col­lects. As the archi­tect com­ments, “Tradition is a beau­tiful cage with an open door. We are free to come and go as we please.”
