Landscape And Structures: A Personal Inventory Of Jürg Conzett
a cura di Swiss Federal Office Of Culture, Bern
Landscape and Structures presents civil engineering structures which stand out by virtue of their special relationship with the Swiss landscape: bridges, footbridges, tunnels, retaining walls, passageways etc., i.e. structures serving traffic routes. Civil engineer Jürg Conzett and photographer Martin Linsi focus their interest on works of architectural merit which take account not just of engineering and efficiency, but also of the responses they evoke in the individuals using or looking at them. The book is published in conjunction with the exhibition curated by Jürg Conzett at the Swiss pavilion within the 12th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale. Jürg Conzett's book has been awarded a commendation by the international DAM ARCHITECTURAL BOOK AWARD 2010 in the category Civil Engineering.
