Architecture in Italy’s northernmost Alto Adige, or South Tyrol, as the region is alternately known, has boomed over the past three decades. Many local architects have gained international recognition and broad critical acclaim for designs that show a strong sense of location and local materialization.
New Architecture in South Tyrol 2012–2018 highlights fifty-nine buildings in the South Tyrol region realized during the past six years that exemplify the qualities that distinguish the local architectural scene. The selection, chosen by an esteemed international jury, documents diverse buildings from all parts of the South Tyrol region through images, plans, and brief texts. The book offers a survey of recent architectural trends and developments in this alpine environment and discusses them in the context of current trends and developments in architecture more broadly. Lavishly illustrated with four hundred color images, it is an up-to-the-moment portrait of a region with a lively architectural scene rooted in rich local tradition.
