Description

Caminada is known far beyond the boundaries of Switzerland; as an architect who has initiated the design and construction of the award-winning renewal of his home community Vrin in Grisons, and as Professor of Architecture and Design at ETH Zurich. At Valendas, which once was a thriving village but recently suffered from rural exodus, he revitalized (commissioned by a community trust) a country inn, the community hall, and the village square, and has thereby helped to avert the impending death of the village. In this illustrated interview volume he tells the story of new life in old villages, and how his concepts function in cooperation with committed citizens. Easy to read, the book introduces the subject of village renewal, and can be used as a blueprint for other projects.
