Architecture in Italy’s northern-most province Alto Adige, or South Tyrol as the largely German-speaking region is also known, has boomed for the past three decades. Many local architects have gained much international recognition and acclaim for their designs that show a great sense of location and materialization.
New Architecture in South Tyrol highlights fifty-nine buildings in the region, realized between 2012 - 2018, that exemplify the particular qualities of local contemporary architecture.
The selection, put together by an international jury, documents a vast range of typologies in all parts of South Tyrol through images, plans, and concise texts. It offers a comprehensive survey of recent architectural trends and developments in this alpine environment and allows for international comparison.
