"Despite its substantial size, this overdue monograph [...] achieves its aims without one word too many. The disproportion between the significance of this Swiss practice and its laconic coverage in the English language has made this volume a matter of urgent necessity... The present monograph is conceived as any of the practice's projects: with consideration towards the conventions of the genre, and a commitment to unostentatious substance."— Building Design
