Item description for Richter & Dahl Rocha Architects A Modern Move: Transforming Nestle Headquarters in Vevey by Oscar Riera Ojeda...
The building which houses the international headquarters of Nestl SA in Vevey, Switzerland succeeds in conveying the fascination of Swiss post-war modernism like no other. Idyllically located on Lake Geneva, set in a landscaped park, this masterpiece from the renowned architect Jean Tschumi combines the essential features of modern architecture with spaciousness and elegance. Jacques Richter and Ignacio Dahl Rocha have spent many years renovating, modernising and extending this remarkable building. Their transformation has become a manifesto for an intuitive and creative approach to working with historical monuments. This book documents this exemplary building and its recent transformation, touching on a wide range of issues, and providing fascinating glimpses into topics such as Le Corbusier as Nestls exhibition architect, our approach to historical monuments of the 20th century, the architecture of Jean Tschumi, and the work of Richter and Dahl Rocha.
