Baptiste Bernazeau draws on a degenerating building complex for his latest typeface

By Daphne Milner

Orgues de Flandre is a group of residential buildings in Paris’ 19th arrondissement built in the 1970s by architect Martin van Treeck, which sharply contrast the romantic, uniform architecture we usually associate with the capital. The building complex may not be conventionally poetic, but it is nonetheless the unlikely inspiration for graphic designer Baptiste Bernazeau’s latest typeface Ogres.
