    Overview

    Monograph of this influential Swiss architect and teacher of architecture Overview of his written work and documentation of his 14 most important buildings Previously unpublished designs from the archive of the EPFL

    Aims and Scope

    Who has not seen the St Pius Church in Meggen, with its unrivalled translucent marble envelope? For over 50 years, its architect, Franz Füeg, has been designing, building, writing, and also teaching at the EPF Lausanne. Only few architects of his generation have portrayed such a diverse and comprehensive understanding of the profession. With this book, the proponent of Swiss post-modernism, who was born in Solothurn in 1921, provides a personal account. His work has always raised fundamental questions about the condition of construction and the responsibility of the architect for his environment and, at the same time, provides a background to understanding contemporary criteria in architecture and urban design.
