  • Menzi Burgler

    Heinz Wirz

    Product Code: AZLOB
    Paperback
    The Zurich architects Oliver Menzi and Philippe Burgler demonstrate their ability to balance function with their signature reserved style. They skilfully play these attributes off each other, creating attractive public buildings such as the school and sports hall in Matzendorf, and the parish hall in Wurenlos. Similarly, the recently completed new wing at the Felsberg school, Lucerne, is a small masterpiece that shows their mastery of interior space, exterior structure, and precision in detail. This small book showcases some of Menzi and Burgler's greatest accomplishments to date.

  • Walter Angonese - Kaltern

    Heinz Wirz

    Product Code: AZFEE
    Paperback
    The buildings by this South Tyrolean architect, Walter Angonese, share a uniquely sophisticated structure. This stems from their close relationship with pre-existing components of their location; they grow organically within these specific parameters. The new building interweaves with topography, perimeter walls, and neighbouring structures to create new and powerful landscapes.

  • Architecten de Vylder Vinck Taillieu

    Heinz Wirz

    Product Code: AUNIY
    Paperback
    The name of this firm is formed from the three Belgian architects Jan De Vylder, Inge Vinck and Jo Taillieu in Ghent. The volume presents some of their interventions to existing building constellations. These are always like surgical procedures that dissect the existing structures and then carefully complement and extend them. In this way, they create airy, often audacious figures that are confidently self-assertive.

    Heinz Wirz

    Product Code: AMNOQ
    Paperback
    Buildings by the London architect Stephen Taylor use their powerfully innovative nature to smoothly integrate themselves into the surroundings, thereby becoming a valuable part of the London environment.
