The Orient in Switzerland: 19th and 20th Century Neo-Islamic Architecture and Interior Design

Neo-islamische Architektur und Interieurs des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts

Edited by: Francine Giese, Leïla el-Wakil and Ariane Varela Braga
This book examines the fascinating and neglected history of Oriental-style architecture in Switzerland. Based largely on unpublished case studies from the 19th and 20th century, the essays examine the reception of Islamic art and architecture in the various Swiss regions. They illustrate the relevance of this artistic phenomenon in Switzerland and in the larger context of Europe as a whole.
