Hans-Jörg Ruch gained international attention with his restoration of historic houses in the Engadin. “Close-up“ features the firm’s entire oeuvre: residential buildings, hotels, museums and more, also including the restored historic houses with the careful and sensitive contemporary interventions that made its name. Each project is presented in atmospheric photographs, selected plans and concise texts.
We are delighted that books from both Park Books and Scheidegger & Spiess made it on the list of the 25 Most Beautiful German Books 2018: Auftritt Appenzell, American Readers at Home, and New Housing in Zurich.
Congratulations to the designers Antje Kolm, Diego Bontognali and Valeria Bonin from Bonbon, Ludovic Balland, and all others who have contributed to this success!
The bookstore Never Stop Reading is located in Zurich's old town, only a few steps from the Kunsthaus, the University, and ETH. The store features a broad range of international publications on architecture, photography, art, and design, as well as a section of general-interest English books. The new spaces can be used for small exhibitions and we'll be hosting a diverse program of book launches, readings, panel discussions . . . We're looking forward to seeing you there!
