contributed by stefan_tuchila

Simple but yet complex, one of the best works by this Swiss practice can be found in St. Gallen. The recipe is simple: take a simple form of building and give it a nice skin. Using a series of repetitive modules, the architects create a façade that decomposes the site, the context, the surroundings. The different angle of each module creates this effect, which is emphasized by the beautiful "savage" garden that neighbours the buildings.
