Architecture in Italy's northern-most province Alto Adige, or South Tyrol as the largely German-speaking region is also known, has boomed for the past three decades. Many local architects have gained much international recognition and acclaim for their designs that show a great sense of location and materialisation.
New Architecture in South Tyrol 2012-2018 highlights some forty buildings in the region realised between 2012 and 2018 that exemplify the particular qualities of local contemporary architecture. The selection, put together by an international jury, documents a vast range of typologies in all parts of South Tyrol through images, plans and concise texts. It offers a comprehensive survey of recent architectural trends and developments in this alpine environment and allows for international comparison. The book is a lavishly illustrated and an up-to-date portrait of a region with a lively and innovative architectural scene that is rooted in a rich tradition of craftsmanship.
