Made of Concrete
Publisher: Birkhauser 2018 ISBN: 9783035614459 Author: Daniel Mettler and Daniel Studer Format: Hardcover, 108pp, 320 x 280mm
The publication presents an analysis of 16 contemporary Swiss concrete buildings using large-scale, detailed isometric drawings. The buildings represent examples of the diverse methods available for using concrete to build contemporary architecture.
Series of images on the construction processes and texts on the methods used, and a systematic overview of the construction principles of building envelopes, provide the reader with a new, deeper understanding.
The book is the result of in-depth research by the authors at the Architecture Department of the ETH Zurich. It demonstrates the innovative strength of Swiss architectural production, which combines current technical requirements with sophisticated building culture.
