The Swiss Institute presents "The Most Beautiful Swiss Books", an exhibition of the award-winning books in the last three editions (2016/2017/2018) of the competition The most beautiful Swiss books organized by the Federal Office of Culture. The exhibition is designed by Jonas Voegeli - Hubertus Design, winner of the Jan Tschichold 2019 Award, and by Samuel Gross, Artistic Director of the Swiss Institute.
The competition The most beautiful Swiss books recognize the work of the most talented book designers of the year, encourage and showcase high quality productions and then promote the winning works. A traveling exhibition is organized every year in Switzerland and abroad, as a promotional measure to share and consolidate skills related to book design.
Every year an international jury selects the projects that meet the eligibility criteria and chooses the most beautiful Swiss books, documented in a catalog designed by Teo Schifferli.
Temporary Architecture Bookshop
In conjunction with the exhibition, a Temporary Architecture Bookshop will be set up in which you can buy a selection of the most interesting volumes of architecture, graphics, design, published by Swiss and Italian publishers. The idea of the bookshop, which will be managed by Temporary Bookstore, arises following the Swiss Talks, a multi-year series of meetings dedicated to the orientations of contemporary architecture in Switzerland, curated by Federico Tranfa and produced by Casabella Formazione and Istituto Svizzero.
