Description
Although architecture has always been a collaborative process, only recently has it been explicitly recognized as such. A growing number of engineers are playing a prominent role in the formulation, development, and transformation of architectural ideas, and a leader in this group is the young Swiss engineer Jrg Conzett.

"Structure as Space looks at selected bridges and buildings by the engineering firm of Conzett, Bronzini, Gartmann, many of which were created in collaboration with some of Europes most innovative architectural practices, including Burkhalter & Sumi, Gigon & Guyer, Meili & Peter, Jngling & Hagmann, and Peter Zumthor. Since the age of the Grand Tour, the bridges and tunnels through the mountain passes of Graubnden in northern Switzerland (where many of Conzetts projects are located) have been considered not only traffic routes but also important tourist sites. As a consequence, these engineered works have been appreciated as works of architecture. These structures and other influences (such as the unprecedented buildings produced by the industrial revolution) are charted in a series of texts by Conzett, Mohsen Mostafavi, and Bruno Reichlin.
