New IABR website

Welcome to the new IABR website, an important step in the introduction of our new visual identity. Our Polite Society (OPS) designed and developed this website for the IABR that introduces a support structure starting from the new logo, which was presented and implemented last month.

The website functions as an open sketch, wireframe, or blueprint, allowing for the addition of different elements. At the heart of the website lies the archive, containing diverse contributions that can be filtered by formats, themes, and dates. These entries are also accessible in related biennials and research projects, forming interlinked connections. This navigation approach illuminates the multiple perspectives on projects, the process towards the biennales, and the links between all of the elements of the IABR.

The IABR hosts various visual languages for biennales and research projects. In response, OPS implemented a subtle yet raw grid structure, serving as a backdrop that frames these identities. The custom-designed typeface blends into the lines and overall sketch-like atmosphere, leaving room for future developments and additions.

The website was developed in collaboration with Richard Niessen. Lotte Haagsma is responsible for the editing, with web content management by Marijke Appelman.

Although the website has been made with the greatest care, it may contain mistakes and omissions. The website will be developed further in the coming period. Please send any corrections or comments to
