Metropole Ruhr / Book

Metropole Ruhr

Discipline: Communication

Metropole Ruhr

Discipline: Communication

“Metropolitan Ruhr” is the new name for the Ruhr region, one of the biggest European conurbations. In the book of the same name the Metropolitan Ruhr presents itself – out-of-the ordinary, courageous, visionary – just like the people who live there. In this book, they talk about their experiences in and with the Ruhr region, their responsibility for the history they have inherited and for the repositioning of the region’s future. The 33 portraits present personalities, big and small, in their work environments and in the places they hold dear to their hearts. This uniquely esthetic “storybook” draws a passionate picture of an exciting region.
