Despite the uncertain outcome and an amount of research which, done under time pressure, was difficult to limit, failure was never an option. For us things were much the same as for the architects around the age of 35. Totally selfassured and perhaps somewhat naive, in conceiving this issue we brashly maintained that architects no longer work just in the classic way but are also active in related areas, and that the main concern is not making “author architecture”. Handcraft is becoming more important, careers no longer take straight paths, but are networked, international and creative.
werk, bauen + wohnen presents topical and critical reports about architecture within the international context. The theme-based issues offer in-depth analyses, comparisons and background information. The voice of the BSA (Bund Schweizer Architekten / Federation of Swiss Architects), werk, bauen + wohnen is in its 107th year of publication.
