Forms of Practice: German-Swiss Architecture 1980 - 2000.
Davidovici, Irina.
Forms of Practice: German-Swiss Architecture 1980 - 2000.
During the 1980s and '90s, German-Swiss architecture gained worldwide acclaim for the novelty of its construction and its striking aesthetic coherence. In this book, Irina Davidovici carefully examines the cultural and theoretical conditions that gave rise to the movement. Forms of Practice combines in-depth case studies of specific pieces of architecture with theoretical essays exploring implicit conflicts that arise between a number of dichotomies: the individual artist and the ethos of the movement; artistic integrity and economic interests; and the abstract and the concrete reality of a building.
