The Argentine architect Ignacio Dahl Rocha and the Swiss architect Jacques Richter have been regarded as prominent champions of an elegant brand of modernity at least since their design of the Espacité Tower on Place Le Corbusier in La Chaux-de-Fonds and their renovation of Jean Tschumi’s Nestlé corporate headquarters on the shores of Lake Geneva. Their work in the United States and Canada, which began when they were students together at Yale University, is increasingly expanding to include South America as well. In the last fifteen years, they have completed numerous projects, including cultural, educational, administrative, hospital, and residential buildings, primarily in Switzerland but also in Germany, Saudi Arabia, and Argentina. The most important are presented here, in this only current monograph on the firm.

Der Argentinier Ignacio Dahl Rocha und der Schweizer Jacques Richter gelten spätestens seit dem Zentrum Espacité an der Place Le Corbusier in La Chaux-de-Fonds und seit der Erneuerung von Jean Tschumis Hauptquartier für Nestlé am Genfer See als profilierte Vertreter einer eleganten Moderne. Ihre Präsenz in den USA und Kanada, die mit ihrem gemeinsamen Studium an der Yale University begann, erstreckt sich immer stärker auch auf den Süden des amerikanischen Kontinents. Von den zahlreichen Kultur-, Schul-, Verwaltungs-, Krankenhaus- und Wohnbauten der letzten 15 Jahre, die hauptsächlich in der Schweiz, aber auch in Deutschland, Saudi-Arabien und Argentinien entstanden, werden in dieser einzigen aktuellen Monographie die wichtigsten vorgestellt.
