“Fingerprints” exhibition by Rossetti + Wyss Architekten at la Galerie d’Architecture

La Galerie d’Architecture presents the exhibition on the Swiss architects featuring photos, drawings and physical models of their recent work.

Simplicity is never vapid. Reduction is the path to clarity and precision. A constant process of weighing and choosing between different elements produces spatial and structural solutions. The result is a formal, simple language, full of experiences and spatial successions. Restraint is the watchword.

The process is fed by a context, an economy of means and a natural balance. Human beings, as spectators, are the focus and the measure. They are both trigger and scale in the built environment. The question is not always how, but why. Integration and humility lead to clear and recognizable results. It is at this point that identification begins, and the desired identity emerges. Fingerprints are unique, relative and specific; unequivocal proof and marks of identity.

ROSSETTI + WYSS ARCHITEKTEN

Rossetti + Wyss seek through their work process a clear, singular and recognizable positioning. From the genesis of the project to the execution of the works, a conscious and continuous reduction of the means of realization allows to reach a controlled architectural project and faithful to its starting concept. The apparent simplicity of the architectural form enhances the legibility of the project.

“The Art of Intervention” is the guiding thread of Rossetti + Wyss’s thought. Rossetti + Wyss was founded by Nathalie Rossetti and Mark Aurel Wyss in January 2000. The agency works on architectural and urban projects. It responds to all stages of different interventions, from the construction of new buildings to rehabilitation and restructuring, at different scales ranging from the city to the object of design.
