9783721208023: Architecture Dialogues: Positions - Concepts - Visions

Welcome to the 21st century in Swiss architecture. An engrossing collection of interviews with Swiss superstar architects like Herzog & de Meuron, Peter Zumthor, Valerio Olgiati, Mario Botta and Luigi Snozzi offers a window into their plans, obsessions, thoughts and predictions. What are they working on? Where are they going next? Nine interviewers talk to 30 leading Swiss architects, both established and cutting-edge, about the future of architecture, their increasingly complex relations with clients and the public sphere, and their role in the international dialog on what architecture means in the early 21st century. Over the course of the conversations, these architects present not only their positions on the constructive, conceptual and aesthetic dimensions of architecture, but also their projections for the future of the discipline. A ''must have'' for lovers of architectural history!

Book Description Niggli Verlag. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Architecture Dialogues: Positions - Concepts - Visions, Marc M. Angelil, Jorg Himmelreich, For decades, Swiss architecture has enjoyed international acclaim. Yet how are Helvetic architects positioning themselves in Switzerland's drastically changing working environment? What impact are they having at present? In Architecture Dialogues, eight interviewers talk with thirty leading Swiss architects about guiding themes, directions and perspectives in their theoretical explorations and building projects. Over the course of conversation, these architects present not only their positions on the constructive, conceptual and aesthetic dimensions of architecture, but also their projections for the future of this discipline against the backdrop of the emerging 21st century and its challenges. The viewpoints compiled in the following primer offer insight into the possibilities and limitations encountered by architects in their complex roles and responsibilities. It serves both as a snapshot as well as an important contribution to the international discourse on architecture. Among the interviewed architects and offices are Herzog & de Meuron, Peter Zumthor, Valerio Olgiati, Mario Botta, Luigi Snozzi and many others. Bookseller Inventory # B9783721208023
