S AM Basel - In Land Aus Land - Swiss Architects Abroad
Swiss architects building abroad is not a new phenomenon. In the last few decades architects related to the Ticino’s Tendenza and minimalism have brought attention to Swiss architecture on an international level. In this exhibition, S AM presents selected projects of built and planned projects from the past 10 years of Swiss practices and examines the impact on the architects' local practice.
In this interview Piet Eckert and Wim Eckert talk about their experience with building abroad, in particular the Heinrich Böll Stiftung and the new media headquarter for the taz newspaper in Berlin and how it influences their continuing work.
