Swiss Architecture Yearbook 2023/24
- Inaugural edition of the new biennial Swiss Architecture Yearbook
- Showcases 36 outstanding new buildings as well as urban and landscape design projects, selected by an international jury
- With supplementary essays on the most relevant topics in the face of current challenges in the field of architecture and urban design
The new SAY Swiss Architecture Yearbook is the first of its kind in Switzerland. Jointly edited by the Basel-based Swiss Architecture Museum S AM and the renowned architecture journal werk, bauen+wohnen on behalf of the Stiftung Architektur Schweiz, it reflects the country’s remarkably diverse architectural creation and provides international visibility for the outstanding quality of Swiss architecture and building culture.
Yet SAY is more than a mere selection of the best: it thoroughly examines current topics that concern many people at the time of a construction boom in the country and amid the increasingly felt effects of climate change. From a list of well over a hundred nominees from all parts of the country, 36 projects were selected by an international jury for SAY’s inaugural 2023/24 edition. The featured projects are supplemented by topical essays that look at the most pressing questions in Swiss architecture discourse, at the characteristics of Swiss architecture today, and examine what lasting contribution it makes to the quality of life in all parts of the country.
