This issue features 15 examples of contemporary Swiss architecture, including the most recent projects of Christian Kerez, Gigon/Guyer and Valerio Olgiati. The ongoing media reputation of Swiss architecture is examined, as are current developments that see Swiss architects embracing new possibilities in materials and colour, and moving away from their prior reputation as minimalists. Additional articles explore sustainability in Swiss architecture, and the central European climate as a unifying design factor.
