New Swiss Architecture provides the perfect vehicle for stunning architectural photography. An assessment of architecture from the past decade set against an Alpine backdrop of mountain peaks and lakes, the book surveys a new generation of architectural practitioners inspired by illustrious studios such as Herzog & de Meuron. The volume offers a detail-orientated appraisal of inventive structures and their novel take on traditional Swiss materials and techniques, combined with an experimental approach to proportion and volume. It also serves to showcase rarely seen designs, many of which have been constructed with remote landscapes in mind. The featured architects are set on establishing an inimitable identity in the world of Swiss structural design, and it is this aim for elegance and individuality that surfaces in the title’s striking imagery. New Swiss Architecture is out now, published by Thames & Hudson. www.thamesandhudson.com.
