Leading Swiss architect Peter Märkli is renowned for his contemporary designs that emphasise materials, proportions, and cultural context. With a diverse portfolio spanning over 40 years, his work showcases an attention to detail and a commitment to creating harmonious spaces. Providing an in-depth study of Märkli’s work through an extensive body of 700 drawings by the architect himself, this book also includes eight essays in French and Italian. Märkli studied at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. During this time he met his mentor, architect Rudolf Olgiati, and famed sculptor Hans Josephsohn. He then established Studio Märkli, in 1978.
