Casa Kalman – Luigi Snozzi
|Author||Harald R. Stühlinger|
Casa Kalman ranks as a milestone in Swiss architecture of the 1970s. The architect, Luigi Snozzi (1932–2020), considered it to be his most important residential project. This is the first publication devoted specifically to this building. In examining Casa Kalman, it engages with the special topographical context of the holiday home and provides insight into its conception and recognition by the media as an architectural icon. The book also features previously unpublished archival material and an interview with its current owner and inhabitant, the daughter of the woman who commissioned it. Part of a new monographic series on selected examples of Swiss architecture.
