S AM 10: Bildbau / Building Images.
S AM 10: Bildbau / Building Images.
Forty Swiss architectural projects of the past twenty-five years, with interviews with Peter Zumthor, Herzog & de Meuron, Gigon/Guyer, among others and photographs by Thomas Ruff, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Jeff Wall, among others. Gion Caminda's "Funeral Home" in Vrin, Peter Zumthor's thermal baths in Vals, the Olympic Stadium in Beijing by Herzog & de Meuron - almost everyone knows about these famous buildings, but not everyone has visited them. Our impressions of contemporary architecture are often shaped by photographs. Bildbau offers a panorama of the past twenty-five years of Swiss architecture. Iconic buildings that have contributed to the global success of Swiss architecture are presented not in plans and models, but solely in photographs. These enable artistic positions to enter into dialogue with architecture photography. This publication contains exemplary photography, while its 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? This is an exciting examination of how we perceive and document architecture English/ German.
