Import – Export

Roger Diener already doubted years ago whether “Swiss Architecture” can be exported: certainly, designs can be implemented outside the country but not the typical Swiss precision in the detailing and construction. And indeed there are many Swiss architects that have spent time abroad from which they have profited, but few offices that build outside the country’s borders. Our issue, which appears on the occasion of the exhibition “In Land, Aus Land” of S AM Basel, shows current examples and enquires about the new experiences and interests that can be discovered in a different context.
