A visual atlas of contemporary Swiss architecture

  • Architects reflect on relevant, inspiring and trailblazing building projects
  • A visual atlas of contemporary Swiss architecture with more than 480 photographs
  • With positions by Christ & Gantenbein, EM2N, Conradin Clavout, Made in, Buzzi studio d’architettura u.v.m.

While the image of Swiss architecture, above all internationally, is still greatly marked by the 1990s and Minimalism, buildings recently constructed or currently under construction are regionally differentiated and heterogeneous – Swiss Architectures, not Swiss Architecture.

Thanks to the collaboration of almost 160 architecture offices, Schweizweit constitutes a kind of instantaneous take on current building production in Switzerland.

Each essay is in the respective author’s language (German, French or Italian) and in English translation.

The exhibition of the same name at the S AM Schweizerisches Architekturmuseum will run until the beginning of May 2017.
Maar de vragen zijn goed en de antwoorden vaan bijzonder interessant en intrigerend. [...] Wat dat betreft is zo’n boek met een breed overzicht een genot voor iedere architectuurliefhebber. Daar kan ik toch wel blij van worden.
Die Fragen sind gut und die Antworten besonders interessant und faszinierend. [...] Darum ist dieses Buch mit der breiten Übersicht ein Genuss für jeden Architekturliebhaber. Es macht mich sehr glücklich. (Holly Moors, moors magazine, 12.12.2016)
