This new book the first to comprehensively feature Moniteurs' work -covers ten years of projects, documenting the culture and working methods of the office. Moniteurs is the recipient of many honors, including the Iconic Design Award 2013 for its "Potsdamer Platz" orientation system. The graphics are reproduced in book form on a 1:1 scale, appearing as colorful fragments hinting at their larger purpose.
