Swiss architect Hans-Jorg Ruch has made an international name for himself with his thrillingly designed buildings and restorations. Based in St. Moritz since 1989, his specialty has been the reconstruction of the grand farmhouses and homesteads of the Alpine Engadin in southeast Switzerland--an architect's dream environment as an epic stage for architectural experiment. Through Ruch's bold interventions, the character of these Engadin houses enters into a fresh interplay with the traditional architecture of that region and with the spectacular backdrop surrounding them. Ten of Ruch's interventions are presented in this book for the first time, illustrated with more than 200 large-format photographs and plans. Supplementing these photographs is a personal text by Ruch, in which he outlines his philosophy, explains his approach to individual projects and presents the construction materials as they are revealed in the course of reconstruction.show more
