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!
