To these Swiss architects, each and every building assignment represents a specific theme to be discovered and developed. It is the theme, and not a preconceived formal and material canon, stylistic characteristics or a 'personal signature', that is the basis of the design. Their individual buildings are aphorisms that elucidate their architectural ideas and intentions only when seen as a sum total. This comprehensive monograph is arranged around 5 themes - 'Research and Practice', 'Physics and Physiognomy', 'Transformation Processes', 'Construction vs. Construct', and 'Tectonics and Topography'.
