About this title:

Synopsis:

The Lausanne architects Mann Capua Mann have been active since 1991. Their mottoes are: Distill the answers for the concrete project from the elements on site. Design spaces that, for all their dynamism, are organized in a manner that is clear to the users. Utilize materials that are in harmony with the surroundings. Their structures are compelling thanks to the variety of their views, the diversity of their light effects, and the expressive simplicity of their spatial effects.

This monograph is being published in the Collection Archigraphy Lémaniques, which is under the general editorship of Bruno Marchand. It offers for the first time a solidly based and thoroughgoing overview of the activity of the firm, which has distinguished itself in the Western Swiss architecture scene with its small but sophisticated body of work.

Graeme Mann and Patricia Capua Mann are founding members of the Forum d Architectures de Lausanne. In the 2006/07 semester, they served as visiting professors at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).

From the Back Cover: A pursuit in continuity. Graeme Mann and Patricia Capua Mann belong to those architects who share a same interest for teaching and practice, two activities that mutually enhance each other. They have taught at the EPFL in workshops with Mangeat, Chipperfield, Fretton, Campo Baeza, Zenghelis and were visiting Professors in 2006 - 2007. In their architecture, despite the fact that every project has its own characteristics and responds to a precise context, one can note a continuous and progressive research around the same themes: the use of strict geometrical principles, a creation of spatial movement enhanced by appropriate structural study, a sensitive assembly of materials and great attention towards the surrounding environment. Several of their projects therefore have a similarity, although expressing different features and characteristics: a new and original position in the eclectic ambiance which characterises the contemporary architectural scene and is the strength of significant buildings such as the sports hall in Villaz-St-Pierre and the college in Gland.
