Aims and Scope
Werner Blaser is among the most respected architectural critics of recent decades, who has interacted with virtually all of the major architects, including Mies, Foster, Piano, and Calatrava. In Synthesis, he tells the story of his encounters with architects and architecture. In addition, he is also the creator of collages that make apparent aesthetic connections between the East and West, and between traditional and contemporary architecture.
"Die eigenwillige Bildsprache der sich überlagernden Architekturfotografien, zum Teil auch Zeichnungen, führt unmittelbar in Blasers Welt."
