How do we want to live together in the future? How can tourism be shaped sustainably? How can condominium owners be persuaded to make their
property energy-efficient without destroying its historical value? The projects awarded the Umsicht – Regards – Sguardi prize by the Swiss Society of Engineers and Architects (SIA) provide innovative and sustainable answers to these and other burning questions in the field of building culture. The six
award-winning works are featured in an exhibition running from 25th to 31st July 2015 at the Istituto Svizzero.
The exhibition showcases a wide variety of structures, including the multigenerational house ‘Giesserei’ in Winterthur, the commercial building NOERD – headquarters of bag manufacturer Freitag – and the Flem Riverside Trail (Trutg dil Flem) in Flims.
The exhibition also takes into account diverse methods and perspectives, which ties in with the exhibition’s maxim of using multidisciplinary knowledge and joining different views together. A mixture of text, designs, sketches, films and photographs creates a multifaceted display. Contributors to the exhibition include filmmaker Marc Schwarz and photographer Tom Haller, whom the SIA invited to portray the projects in his unique photographic style.
