Swissness Applied

Swissness Applied is a transcultural analysis of New Glarus that represents challenges in architecture and urban design as examples of current social transformations in global contexts. It is one of several towns in America founded by European immigrants that adapt the architecture to the image of their heritage. The exhibition questions the translation of the cultural image in architecture and illustrates through representational means the results and potential outcomes of the New Glarner Swiss themed building codes.
