Publisher Ada Edita Global Architecture

Idea Code 18407

The focus of the sixth instalment in the ‘Villages and Towns’ series is the highly diverse, mountainous region of Europe known generally as the Alps. Stretching across multiple nations, including the entirety of Switzerland, the area has a long history of settlement and has witnessed various approaches to living and building. The Alpine region is thus a mosaic, dotted with different settlements at various formative stages, and the contrast and blend between French and German cultures creates a place where two worlds coexist in a discontinuous manner. Through contemporary and historical photographs, this issue explores traditional wood and stone architecture typologies of the Alps.
