Aims and Scope
The Graubünden-based architect Valerio Olgiati has become well-known outside Switzerland for such buildings as his school building in Paspels and the Atelier Bardill in Scharans, but not least for his Yellow House and his studio in Flims. In the form of a wellillustrated essay, the architect explains how he develops his projects, the parameters that influence his design process, and the intellectual context from which he works. In a reduced, clear language this iconographic autobiography offers a very personal view of the Valerio Olgiati’s activity and of his selfimage as an architect, thus supplementing with a personal statement the earlier publication DADO.
Text (in Italian language) and images complement each other to create a narrative thread that offers informative insights into the architect’s intellectual and visual imagination and expands our understanding of Olgiati’s oeuvre.
