First English Book on eminent architectural Personality, Rolf Mühlethaler
Rolf Mühlethaler is an award-winning Swiss architect whose approach is characterised by a comprehensive analysis of local and historical contexts in combination with a deep conceptual understanding of structural elements, symmetry, simplicity, and repetition. Drawing on more than thirty years of experience (twenty of these being with his own Bern-based firm, Rolf Mühlethaler Architekt) he carefully designs and crafts his buildings with an eye toward balancing these concerns, or creating a fragile order.
Published to accompany a major exhibition at Architekturgalerie Luzern, Fragile Order - Rolf Mühlethaler presents the first comprehensive English-language look at Mühlethaler's complete body of work. The architect has realised projects for both public and private clients, including single- and multi-family residences, schools, studios, and office spaces, as well as conversions of historic industrial buildings. Richly illustrated throughout with photographs that capture all stages of the process, from design sketches to completed projects, Fragile Order - Rolf Mühlethaler will be of interest to architects, as well as structural and building engineers.
