KNAPKIEWICZ & FICKERT. Simon, Axel ed. Knapkiewicz & Fickert: Housing

Cl. Park Books. 2013

Book ID: 94099

Two of the foremost architects in Switzerland, Kaschka Knapkiewicz and Axel Fickert have gained great recognition since establishing their studio in 1992. Their work on residential projects has influenced a generation of younger architects and created important new trends in housing. Knapkiewicz and Fickert have produced work that embraces opposites equally; their buildings are at once austere and luxurious, frugal and lavish. This volume examines twenty of their residential buildings, including ones that have been realized as well as those that never made it off the page. Each work is presented with a short description and extensive images, from blueprints and renderings to drawings and color photographs. An interview with both architects begins the book and lays the foundation for understanding their oeuvre. Knapkiewicz & Fickert. Housing is published to coincide with Knapkiewicz & FickertÕs work being featured in the exhibition at the Swiss pavilion at the Thirteenth International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennial
