Bundesverwaltungsgericht: Bauen für die Justiz
The Federal Administrative Court: Building for Justice
Architects Astrid Staufer and Thomas Hasler have been working together in their native Switzerland since 1994. Their competition-winning design for the Federal Administrative Court in St. Gallen marks their entry to the global architectural dialogue with this important trilingual publication. Photo essays, texts and maps from artists, architects, politicians, planners, architectural theorists and engineers deal with the architecture of the building as well as its background and the history of its planning and construction. The diversified perspectives and approaches of well-known authors, including Silvain Malfroy and Bruno Reichlin, shed light on this sophisticated project and explore the question of how “law” as a societal and ethical concept can materialize itself in modern architecture.
