What if - Unbuilt Architecture in Switzerland
|Author||S AM Schweizerisches Architekturmuseum; A. Kofler, A. Ruby eds.|
When it comes to matters related to architecture and urban planning, few other countries grant their population such a far-reaching democratic right of co-determination as Switzerland. The strategy facilitates both a societal acceptance of architecture and the constant prevention of projects, among which are some rather notable examples. Such projects, often painstakingly developed but ultimately not implemented, are part and parcel of the everyday life of Swiss architectural firms. Whether lost, rejected, stalled, or altered, a host of architectural designs exist that are still spoken about today, despite the fact that nothing ever came of them. This is a representative selection.
