Ensemble Chauderon - AAA
|Author||Christina Haas; Harald R. Stühlinger|
Built between 1969 and 1974 as an administrative centre, the complex known as Immeubles Chauderon is regarded in Switzerland as one of the most remarkable buildings of its day. The prominent location, the intricate traffic and pedestrian routing system, the glittering aluminium facades developed together with Jean Prouvé, and the central car-free square make the work designed by Atelier des Architectes Associés (AAA) an icon of 1970s-era urban planning. In illustrating how the ensemble is integrated into the city’s texture, this book by Christina Haas and Harald R. Stülinger also provides a comprehensive overview, with historical plans, drawings, and photographs.
