Since the early 1980s, Peter Märkli has
been one of the most striking protagonists of German Swiss architecture
from the earliest period of its emergence. However his impressive
buildings cannot be easily classified in the scheme of this
architectural movement, since the individual buildings are intensely
developed individuals that follow the continuous movement of seeking.
They always open up connections with the history of architecture in an
independent, powerful way and express the impetus of timeless validity.
This volume presents 17 buildings in
detail from the last 15 years with texts, plans and images. The
remarkable presentation of works is complemented by enlightening essays
by Florian Beigel & Philip Christou, Franz Wanner and Ellis Woodman.
An exciting interview with Peter Märkli by Elena Markus and individual
statements by the architects round off the impressive collection.
