Galletti & Matter : Collection of Places : Buildings and Projects Hardback
Edited by Bruno Marchand
Part of the Collection Archigraphy Lemaniques series
Innovative, flexible and pragmatic: the award-winning office of Galletti & Matter.
Claude Matter and Olivier Galletti, two young Swiss architects, have developed an essentially pragmatic approach based on sensitivity to location.
They begin with an initial concept, not a definitive answer, open to modification during the construction process.
The creation of various and distinctive spaces corresponding to situations and demands that crystallize on location, rather than the realisation of a preconceived homogeneous design.
This volume, the first in a new series on young architects from Suisse Romande edited by Bruno Marchand, Professor at the Ecole Polytechnique F d rale de Lausanne, presents built projects by Galletti & Matter, including the School Building Collombey and the Espace Gruy re exhibition and cultural centre in Bulle.
