architecture · relations present new realized projects from architectural offices in Switzerland, England and Denmark.

The works are presented with the wish to take a look at an inspiring architecture movement that is seen in all three countries, particularly in England and Switzerland. Architects and teachers support a direction in which architecture is based on context and analysis and in extracting values of cultural, artistic and architectural material.

The architects behind the works show the common feature that they oppose the spectacular and conceptual, instead developing the basic, often historical architectural principles for strong encounters with the surroundings.

The idea of the book is thus to give an architecture school a voice; to reflect on an approach to the architectural task, a working method anchored in place and history, but with a clear starting point in a contemporary and artistic standpoint.
