Arch/Scapes, the Swiss contribution to the 7th International Architecture Biennial Săo Paulo 2007, is revisited through a handful of new architectural projects developed within the heterogeneous cultural landscape of Switzerland. These new buildings often have to stand a raft of exacting democratic processes and negotiations in order to find the right balance because they are situated in landscapes – particularly rural and alpine – that are considered part of the public domain. Pool Architekten, Luigi Snozzi, Peter Zumthor, and Valerio Olgiati are a few of the architects with featured work.
