Switzerland is synonymous with cutting-edge engineering, high-quality design, and precise craftsmanship. Design and architecture have become one of the nation’s most successful exports. This instalment delves into the how and why of contemporary Swiss architecture, exploring through eight projects the attention to detail, knowledge of materials and construction, and ability to innovate that allows architects like Pascal Flammer, Christ&Gantenbein, Gion A. Caminada, and Wespi de Meuron Romeo Architects to stand apart. Also in this issue, a feature on new community libraries, with four works by Toyo Ito, Sebastián Irarrázaval Arquitectos, Vector Architects, and Gautier + Conquet.
