Valerio Olgiati’s latest book is about the beauty of the very varied buildings designed by the Swiss architect, captured in colour photographs and plans. The 15 projects, around half of them realised since the publication of Olgiati’s most recent monograph in 2018, are featured in this exquisite small volume for the first time as finished buildings.
Indoor and outdoor shots show Olgiati’s intuition for spectacular buildings and atmospheric interiors – from the museum for the UNESCO world cultural heritage site in Bahrain to the Celine flagship store in Miami, from the office building for Baloise Insurance’s headquarters in Basel to the bedroom of the French fashion designer Nicolas Ghesquiere, from the visitor centre of the Swiss National Park to the atelier for the musician Linard Bardill in Scharans.
They are presented through colour photographs, floor plans, and sections. The elegant book design follows the style of Olgiati’s highly successful previous book, The Images of Architects.
