Central Switzerland: A Metropolis.
Bund Schweizer Architekten.
Central Switzerland: A Metropolis.
The region surrounding Lake Lucerne is not only the geographical center of Switzerland, but also the core of its national identity. The lake itself is picturesque, and the mountainous countryside around it is famous for its pristine beauty. But central Switzerland's architecture has often been overshadowed by the artistic hubs of Zurich and Basel. To correct this oversight, the Swiss photographer Guido Baselgia has created a vast series of photographs focusing on twentieth-century architecture in central Switzerland. He has included images of single buildings and entire streetscapes, as well as private homes, public works, and industrial parks, all built by the regional section of Bund Schweizer Architekten BSA. Metropolis Central Switzerland seeks to bring the stunning architecture of central Switzerland to a wider audience through 160 of Baselgia's images, presented here in stunning duotone. Four experts, each from a different field, offer their insights into regional architecture and the history, politics, and cultural climate of the area around Lake Lucerne. German.
