A cult figure in Swiss architecture, Gion A. Caminada is best recognised for his timber and stone buildings that uphold the stalwart traditions of Alpine architecture. Using local materials and techniques, he creates sustainable buildings that demonstrate respect for their surroundings, being firmly anchored in the village landscape. This special edition features 26 of his works, ranging from early buildings in his home town of Vrin to current projects. New photos taken especially for this issue, plus an interview with the architect, lend insight into the contemporary advances and solutions to social challenges found within traditional contexts and reflected in his body of work.
