Gion Caminada



It's always a pleasure to see the first monograph to be published on an emerging architect. Gion Caminada is a Swiss architect and planner, and the beautiful new book that we've just added to Library stock focuses on his work in his home town of Vrin, in canton Graubunden, where his timber housing designs have been used to halt outward migration from the area. The book is entitled 'Cul zuffel e l'aura dado', which is Romantsch for 'Architecture with the winds'.
