A major survey of contemporary Swiss architecture showcasing the nation's advanced engineering, superlative craftsmanship, and stunning natural sceneryWith its Alpine peaks, crystalline lakes, and efficient cities, Switzerland has quietly become a center for sophisticated late modern architecture. Architect Peter Zumthor, a former cabinetmaker, and the firm Herzog & de Meuron produced a series of buildings at home and abroad that has paved the way for a younger generation of architects who fuse the country’s traditional materials with high-tech new tools and innovative construction methods.

Descripción Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Established on the global stage by the international success and influence of architects such as Peter Zumthor and Herzog de Meuron, today s generation of architects in Switzerland draws on the country s distinctive landscape of alpine peaks, crystalline lakes and efficient cities, and fuses traditional Swiss materials with new high-tech tools and innovative construction methods. New Swiss Architecture documents fifty of the most important buildings of the last decade through architectural photographs that highlight their exceptional detail, attention to context and material experimentation. Because of their isolated locations, many of these buildings are little known, despite having been designed by leading architects, including Christ Gantenbein, Gigon/Guyer, Valerio Olgiati, Charles Pictet, Richter Dahl Rocha and Diener Diener. The book is presented in two sections: the first comprises a photographic portfolio of projects organized into themes: Alpine, Infrastructural, Recreational, Rural, Suburban, Urban. The second section describes each of the featured buildings through drawings, plans and concise texts. Nº de ref. de la librería AA29780500343036
