Show synopsis Dolf Schnebli (born 1928) received his degree at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University. Having his office first in Ticino and then in Zurich, he soon became one of the most successful and respected Swiss architects. Among his numerous remarkable realizations are the Swiss school in Naples, the Legal Faculty of Washington University and the housing development in Littau/Lucerne. From 1971 to 1994 Schnebli worked as a professor at the renowned Swiss Federal Technical University (ETH) in Zurich. His teaching, inspired by practice, has made an impression on several generations of young architects. The present monograph extensively documents 22 buildings and projects: including the Hirslanden Clinic in Zurich (1989-97), the office complex for UBS in Suglio/Ticino (1990-97), the Institute for Microelectronics of the Ecole Polytechnique Federale in Lausanne (1993-98), and the headquarters of Swiss Re America in New York (1996-).
