The Most Beautiful Swiss Book award

To stimulate discourse on local building culture in Switzerland, the editor, Architektur Forum Ostschweiz, initiated a series of articles that first appeared in the regional daily press, which has now been bundled as a collection, and includes supplementary in-depth essays on topics such as regional building or building in the Alps.

This publication introduces noteworthy buildings as well as landscape and settlement planning schemes realised in the Cantons of Schaffhausen, Thurgau, St. Gallen, both Appenzells, Glarus, Grischun as well as the Principality of Liechtenstein, such as Trutg dil Flem in Flims, the development of Chantun Sur in Pontresina, St. Gallen Canton Hospital, the new building on the summit of Chäserugg or Murg-Auen-Park in Frauenfeld.

The publication investigates their cultural significance with respect to architecture – focussing on the meaning of the particular project for society. Three in-depth essays pick up and discuss leading themes that emerge in the articles. In that way, this book contributes importantly to a comprehensive and fundamental discourse on building culture in all areas of planning and building within and beyond the borders of Switzerland.


Articles by Gerhard Mack, Marina Hämmerle, Rahel Hartmann Schweizer, Martin Tschanz.

Essays by Thomas Schregenberger, Ueli Vogt, Andrea Wiegelmann.
