Vincent Mangeat: Logos and Faber

By (author) Heinz Wirz


A monograph on the work of international renowned architect Vincent Mangeat. Text in English, French and German.
Full Description
Vincent Mangeat became internationally renowned in1988 following the construction of his building for the Cantonal High School in Nyon. Influenced by his work experience in Paris, training under Jean Prouvé and a spell as Assistant to Hans Brechbühler and Pierre Foretay at the EPF Lausanne, Mangeat s work bridges the gap between two architectural eras, namely the Tessin Tendenza of the '70s and '90s architectural styles with their exponents in the German-speaking region of Switzerland. But his work has always remained independent and rooted in western Switzerland. From his first residential building in Evolène (1969) to his current projects, including a house for writers at the foot of the Jura mountains, his wealth of architectural achievements form a important a part of his life and work as his permanent, valuable teaching activity. Text in English, French and German.
