Building Images offers a panorama of the past 25 years of Swiss architecture. Here the iconic buildings that have contributed to the global success of Swiss architecture are presented solely in stunning photographs. Meanwhile, the analytical section highlights the mediatisation of architecture. What role do images play in architectural design? Which architects prefer which photographers? How is architecture translated into images? It is an exciting examination of how we perceive and document architecture. Featured photographers include Iwan Baan, Hélène Binet, Heinrich Helfenstein, Walter Mair, Hiroshi Sugimoto and Jeff Wall, among others. Interviews with both architects – Peter Zumthor, Herzog & de Meuron, and others – and photographers add a further dimension of insight.
