Marcel Meili and Markus Peter are two of the leading architects in Switzerland, and this book is the first comprehensive monograph on the works of their architectural firm, Meili Peter, over the past twenty years.

Urban planning and complex constructive solutions are at the heart of every Meili Peter project, and this volume presents the numerous buildings created by the pair, as well as unrealized projects, concepts, and ideas. Text, images, plans, and drawings are featured for each building, including the Helvetia Patria insurance headquarters in Milan; Swiss Re’s Center for Global Dialogue in Rüschlikon, Switzerland; and the masterplan and headquarters for Süddeutscher Verlag in Munich. Essays by renowned architects—including Jürg Conzett, Hermann Czech, Adolf Krischanitz, and Josep Lluis Mateo—discuss the aesthetic philosophy and impact of Meili Peter buildings.

Marcel Meili, Markus Peter chronicles in detail the philosophy of a successful modern European architecture firm, and will be an informative resource for architects and urban planners alike.
