Back issue for magazine - Architecture+Urbanism 484 (2011/01)

Architecture+Urbanism 484 (2011/01) Architecture in Switzerland arose to international prominence particularly during the 1990s, with the strikingly powerful works of Peter Zumthor, Herzog & de Meuron, Peter Märkli, Gigon / Guyer and several others.
This issue thus seeks to explore how this outstanding architectural legacy has continued to develop in the past decade, presenting a selection of works built in Switzerland from 2000 to 2009. They are featured through three significant thematic qualities of Switzerland’s architecture. “In Context” highlights projects designed in strong relation to the Swiss landscapes, from the rural/alpine to the urban. “Renovation” presents vernacular architecture reinvigorated through contemporary yet appropriate interventions. “In Detail” focuses on the tectonic imagination of the projects, showing the ingenuity and craftsmanship of their materiality, structure and construction. Tracing the direction from now into the future, the section on “Emerging Practices, Education, Ecological Collaborations” showcases intriguing young firms, architecture collaborations in sustainability, and also provides insight to Swiss architectural education through a series of essays. Complementing the featured projects, the main essays by Hubertus Adam and Hannes Mayer, and Erwin J. S. Viray distill the salient tendencies, trajectories and experiences of the architecture in Switzerland in the last 10 years. (a+u)
