About this book

Introduction

‘modern alternatives’ is the first compilation of projects realized by Höller and Klotzner, the fascinating northern Italian architecture office. The book presents six buildings of great conceptual density and craftsmanship. The selected projects are all in northern Italy, but the architecture is not regional or ‘home-style’. It is architecture that takes up and interprets the impulses and tendencies affecting European and international construction landscapes.

A rich collection of graphical and photographic material illustrates the buildings creating a successful link between the innovative approach and the precise construction of the projects. The title of the volume, ‘modern alternatives’ is derived from the various different approaches. It is an indicator that points to the surroundings – he classical modern heritage – and the variety of the pragmatic and experimental solutions which were applied.

The book features an introduction by Alessandro Rocca and Roman Hollenstein and a project index.
