The Swiss canton of Grisons impresses with an overwhelming landscape and outstanding new architecture. The material concrete has a long tradition there in the deliberate confrontation with history, material, scale, and construction. It goes without saying that impressive buildings of innovative material aesthetics blend into the rugged rock formations of the surroundings. While the versatility of wood is evoked elsewhere today, the quality of concrete is revived here.
The book provides a deep insight into the history, materiality and construction of this fascinating material in the Grisons tradition and makes you want to travel there to be inspired by the quality of the 20 project examples presented.
