This book is the first comprehensive monograph dedicated to the works of the Swiss architectural firm, Meili Peter Architects

Marcel Meili (*1953) and Markus Peter (*1957) are two of the leading architects in Switzerland, and this book is the first comprehensive monograph on the works of their architectural firm, Meili Peter Architects.

Urban planning and complex constructive solutions are at the heart of every Meili Peter project, and this volume presents the numerous buildings created by the pair, as well as uized projects, concepts, and ideas. Text, images, plans, and drawings are featured for each building, including the Helvetia Patria insurance headquarters in Milan; Swiss Re’s Center for Global Dialogue in Rüschlikon; the Park Hyatt Zürich; the Swiss College of Timber Industry in Biel/Bienne; and the masterplan and headquarters for Süddeutscher Verlag in Munich. Essays by renowned architects—including Jürg Conzett from Switzerland, Hermann Czech and Adolf Krischanitz from Austria, and Josep Lluís Mateo from Spain—discuss the aesthetic philosophy and impact of Meili Peter buildings.
