André M. Studer. On The Measure Of Things

S AM Swiss Architecture Museum, Steinenberg 7, 4051 Basel, Switzerland

André M. Studer adopted a special position of significance in post-war Swiss architecture. His expressive organic language of forms was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright; based on theories of harmonic proportion, Studer developed his own concept of holistic architecture. Influential figures such as Sigfried Giedion, Werner M. Moser and Bernhard Hoesli described him as one of the most talented in his generation.

From the mid-1950s onwards, Studer realised several major sacral structures, as well as around 30 residential buildings, for which he also designed the interiors and furnishings in most cases. His work also includes competition entries and projects for futuristic-looking holiday complexes, large residential complexes, completetown plans, cultural buildings, hospital buildings and more churches. As anindividualist, he kept his distance from the predominant networks of architects and remained relatively unknown amongst the general public. At the end of the 1980s, he withdrew from the architecture scene, closed down his architectural office and devoted himself to spirituality.
