Central Switzerland, the region around Lake Lucerne, is praised worldwide for the prettiness of its landscape and the dramatic mountain scenery. The city of Lucerne, the nearby mountains and the lake are world-famous tourist destinations. Yet little is known internationally about the region's 20th-century architecture, besides Jean Nouvel's celebrated culture and convention complex KKL in Lucerne. The Swiss photographer Guido Baselgia has created a vast series of photographs documenting this scarcely published architectural world. His carefully conceived images show individual buildings as well as larger groups, revealing their specific architectural qualities as well as their setting within the environment. Included are private and public buildings, residential as well as industrial structures. 'Metropolis Central Switzerland' presents Baselgia's photographs of around 80 buildings in duotone and in a lavish landscape format book design. A discussion among four experts on architectural quality and on chances, challenges and failures in spatial development and urban planning complements the images.
