Schweizweit

‘Schweizweit’ portrays a snapshot of the architecture production in Switzerland in the year 2016. Whilst the image of Swiss architecture, especially internationally, is still strongly characterised by the 1990s and minimalism, the current constructed reality is more heterogeneous and regionally differentiated. In cooperation with around 160 architectural practices from throughout the country a visual atlas of current Swiss architecture has been created. Richly illustrated, this book shows the commonalities and differences in the themes, content and formal strategies that Swiss architects focus on today. Each submission appears in the respective national language: German, French or Italian. All texts have English translations.
