About the book
This will be the only available monograph on the remarkable architecture of the Swiss practice of Diener & Diener. Known for their subtle, sophisticated Modernist buildings and town plans, Diener & Diener have recently begun to design buildings that add a new lightness and liveliness to the geometric rigor and intellectual clarity that have always characterized their deigns. This book will cover the more than 30 years that the firm has practiced with a selection of over 40 key buildings illustrated with a wealth of material from the firm’s archives, as well as Roger Diener’s own writings and essays by prominent architectural historians Martin Steinmann and Joseph Abrams.
