A monograph on the work of the innovative Swiss engineer Jurg Conzett, who has been instrumental in redefining the relationship between structural engineering and architecture. This volume illustrates Conzett's own designs, such as his granite stress-ribbon Suransuns Bridge, as well as his collaborations with Switzerland's leading architects, among them Peter Zumthor and Meili & Peter, Jüngling & Hagmann, and Gion Caminada. Texts by Jürg Conzett, Mohsen Mostafavi, and Bruno Reichlin explore the relation of engineering to architecture and the impact of engineering infrastructures on the natural environment.
