The current yearbook on Swiss architecture and building culture: 36 selected projects, 92 nominations, nine essays on burning contemporary issues in architecture.
"SAY - Swiss Architecture Yearbook is more than a selection of the best. It is an examination of the questions that preoccupy many people in times of the building boom and climate change."
At the center are nine thematic essays: What are the most burning issues facing Swiss architecture? What makes good architecture and how does it contribute sustainably to the quality of life? The yearbook will be published every two years starting in 2023 with the aim of promoting awareness of Swiss building culture internationally as well.
