Item description for Mario Botta--Centre Durrenmatt, Neuchatel by Friedrich Dürrenmatt Peter Erismann...
For 40 years, the Swiss writer, Friedrich Drrenmatt, committed his works to paper from his home which overlooked the beautiful lake Neuchtel in Switzerland. After Drrenmatt's death in 1991, Mario Botta began designing a museum which would be a monument to the writer, housing his drawings, paintings and literary artefacts. Skillfully built onto Drrenmatt's house, the Centre Drrenmatt is nearing completion and will be opened in autumn 2000. Officially endorsed by the Centre, this publication documents the complete realisation of the building, from its initial conception to the finished museum, using texts, drawings and plans from both Drrenmatt and Botta. These are accompanied by expressive photographs by Thomas Flechtner. The result is a fascinating appraisal of geographic beauty, genius loci and modern architectural skill sensitively fusing together.
