This volume looks at nineteen of the most striking and famous works from the much-lauded Swiss architecture firm Bearth & Deplazes Architects. Bearth & Deplazes Architects have labored over an eclectic mix of projects, including the Gantenbein Winery in Fläsch, the ÖKK insurance firm headquarters, and the courtroom in Bellinzona, which is well known for its unique ceiling. In Amurs, the architects of the firm pick their personal favorites from Bearth & Deplazes’s portfolio. Each building is presented in lush, large-format photography, and the Swiss writer Iso Camartin has contributed an introductory essay that provides a comprehensive introduction to the architects’ careers.
