Promenades : Photography and Architecture Paperback / softback

Edited by Markus Bauart Architects and Planners


Promenades is both a treatise on the relationship between architecture and photography and the first book to focus on the work of the Swiss architectural firm Bauart Architects and Planners.

The firm commissioned a variety of photographers working in landscape or architecture to document nine of their projects throughout Switzerland, from houses, schools, and government and office buildings to entirely new neighborhoods.

Each of the photographs represents a personal, wide-angled view of a project, drawing on the rich legacy of nearly two centuries of architectural photography.

An essay by Markus Jakob explores the relationship between photography and architecture in the context of the firm's work over the course of three decades, which carefully accounts for ecology and urban and social context.
