  • A fascinating movement in contemporary architecture
  • Exhibition at the Schweizerische Architekturmuseum in Basel from 28th June to 13th September 2009

The ‹Haus der Architektur Rhône-Alpes› and the‹ Schweizerische Architekturmuseum› introduce offices from the Rhône-Alpes and Swiss region who are regarded as being among the most creative on the architecture scene. Several of them present projects, that highlight the interplay between the local and the global, thus laying a foundations for a new constructive and urban rationality. Against this backdrop, the architects formulate the fundamental features of the respective projects: the relationship between the place and its history, the structures, the materials, the technologies, the aesthetics. The catalogue is an evaluation of a fascinating movement within contemporary architecture.
