An overview of the entire oeuvre of the Swiss architectural office Atelier 5 whose residential buildings have gained international acclaim. Atelier 5 is one of Switzerland's most important architectural offices. Their residential structures and urban projects have gained recognition for the team throughout the world and they rank amongst the most significant examples of residential dwellings in the post-war era. Although Atelier 5 has been active for more than 40 years, their architecture does not succumb to passing trends but seeks to continually create new prototypes. In their designs, they explore the relationship between form and function, ensuring that social needs and the needs of the occupants are given primary consideration. This Studio Paperback naturally looks at their celebrated housing estates such as Halen and Hamburg Rotherbaum, but it also reviews their entire portfolio from single family housing to public buildings.
