For such a small country, Switzerland has an extraordinarily high concentration of revered architects and a level of craftsmanship that is the envy of the world. "Swiss Made" presents the work of contemporary Swiss architects. It features work by 12 of the most celebrated emerging talents. An essay by Steven Spier presents an overview of Swiss architecture and considers the cultural attitudes that have foster such refined buildings, while Martin Tschanz assesses the Swiss tradition of integrating design, local building techniques and engineering that is unlike anywhere else in the world. The work of each architect is shown via a profile and three to six projects, documented through plans, drawings and photographs specially commissioned by photography Christian Richters. The reference section includes a bibliography, concise studio biographies and project information.
