Swiss Made: New Architecture From Switzerland

£14.99

Product description

For such a small country, Switzerland has an extraordinarily high concentration of revered architects and a level of craftsmanship that is the envy of the world. "Swiss Made" presents the work of contemporary Swiss architects. It features work by 12 of the most celebrated emerging talents. An essay by Steven Spier presents an overview of Swiss architecture and considers the cultural attitudes that have foster such refined buildings, while Martin Tschanz assesses the Swiss tradition of integrating design, local building techniques and engineering that is unlike anywhere else in the world. The work of each architect is shown via a profile and three to six projects, documented through plans, drawings and photographs specially commissioned by photography Christian Richters. The reference section includes a bibliography, concise studio biographies and project information.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
