ISBN 9783856763787

During the 1980s and 1990s, German-Swiss architecture gained international recognition for its constructive and aesthetic coherence. Irina Davidovici discusses the cultural and theoretical conditions of this architecture as facets of an artistic attitude. Her external view focuses on the international relevance of this phenomenon and on common values despite the implicit conflict potential between individual solutions, artistic integrity and economic interests. The second edition has been extended by various case studies and deals with additional topics that lead to new interpretative approaches.
