zur Zeitschrift: archithese
Herausgeber:in: FSAI

This is already the ninth time that archithese begins a new year with an issue titled Swiss Performance. What began in 2001 as a trial balloon, namely to review the most important buildings of the previous year, has become a success in the interim. Swiss Performance is regarded as the undeclared yearbook of current Swiss architecture. It need not be emphasized once again that selections are unavoidably subjective. The editors’ own view, that this selection can only be a representative collection of what has been built in Switzerland or built abroad by Swiss architects, tells of the paradigmatic, architectural awareness of quality in a small country within the European context. Several buildings, which could also have been included in this issue, have already been reviewed in previous issues in 2008.

As in past years, this archithese issue has suspended the typical distinction between a thematic section and a section on current architecture – in favor of the distinction between „Swiss Performance“ and „Swiss Unlimited“. In the latter section, smaller or experimental projects can once again be found. The succeeding issues in 2009 adhere to the traditional pattern: Number 2 has „Sacred Buildings“ as its theme, Number 3 „Suburbia“, and Number 4 „Luxembourg“. Number 5 is dedicated to the theme of „Reconstruction and Adaptation“, while Number 6 will expectedly round off the year with the theme of „Material and Sustainability“.
