Birkhäuser, Publishers for Architecture, 2005 - Architecture - 210 pages
Zurich, Switzerland's leading city economically, culturally and scientifically, has long stood in Basel's shadow in terms of innovative architecture. Over the last 15 years, however, Zurich has seen considerable building activity and growth. This guide documents 75 noteworthy buildings and projects from up-and-coming talents such as Pool and EM2N, to famous names such as Gigon Guyer, Burkhalter Sumi, Meili Peter, Santiago Calatrava und Nicholas Grimshaw. 32 selected bars, lounges and restaurants are presented in brief, giving the reader aesthetic and culinary pointers through the Zurich gastronomy scene. Author Roderick H nig is the editor of Hochparterre in Zurich, the Swiss journal for architecture and design.
