MAS Context, edited by Iker Gil, is one of the nation’s foremost presentations of architectural and design culture. From semi-annual published journals to multidisciplinary events and exhibitions, the organization presents different perspectives on the overlapping worlds of design, architecture, and urbanism.
Span was commissioned to design an online curatorial platform for all the facets of MAS Context, including presenting over a decade of publications within a state-of-the-art modern archive. Built on the Craft CMS, the site focuses on presenting the content driven by editorial decisions, allowing the organization to tailor each presentation to the narrative.
In celebration of this new archive, Span was also invited to design a new identity for the organization. The new mark is influenced by the seminal De Stijl movement of the early 1910s, integrating a visible structure into the letterforms that evolves from the previous version designed during the Thirst days.
