Item description for Switzerland - an Urban Portrait: Vol. 1: Introduction - Vol. 2: Borders, Communes : a Brief History of the Territory - Vol. 3: Materials by Roger Diener, Jacques Herzog, Marcel Meili, Pierre de Meuron & Christian Schmid...

The "ETH Studio Basel Institute for the Contemporary City" has been studying Switzerland with its mesh of complex issues for a number of years. Now, the diverse interactions and permutations of its geography, history, language, culture, society, economics, transport, urban life and architecture have been collated and analyzed, revealing the genesis, together with the constant and variable factors which have influenced the country s development. Potentially controversial and /or desirable designs have been put forward for the future of the important metropolitan areas and the Alpine regions. The work is divided into three volumes with a double map of Switzerland.

Switzerland - an Urban Portrait: Vol. 1: Introduction - Vol. 2: Borders, Communes : a Brief History of the Territory - Vol. 3: M  Apr 5, 2008
It's a really productive study of Switzerland. A highly graphically developed book, but also in terms of the text, explanations and in terms of chronological terms about history of Switzerland. A unic set of books to understand Switzerland in aspects of: History, culural and linguistic diversity, bringing all this together in terms of an Urban Portrait.
