Out of Stock. Usually despatches within 2 weeks.


Basel-born architect Max Alioth (1930-2010) was a prominent figure on the Swiss architecture and culture scene. Alioth was a co-founder of Basels' Architecture Museum in 1984, which in 2006 became the Swiss Architecture Museum (S AM). Together with his wife Susanna Biedermann, he founded the Ecole Superieure des Arts Visuels (ESAV) in Marrakech, Morocco, for which he also designed the main campus building.

This first monograph on Max Alioth illuminates his achievements from various perspectives. Selected architectural designs from 1961-2007 are featured in detail through photographs, plans, and texts. These include single-family homes, a retirement home, multi-unit housing, Basel's Museum of Antiquities, as well as the ESAV building in Marrakech. Moreover, the book introduces Alioth also as a visual artist through reproductions of sketches, drawings, and watercolours. Essays by architect Roger Diener, the S AM's director Andreas Ruby, the director of ESAV Vincent Melilli, and art historian and publicist Ulrike Jehle-Schulte Strathaus round out this volume.

Text in English and German.
