Itten+Brechbühl AG

100 years of IB – the eventful history of our firm mirrors the development of architecture in Switzerland during the last 100 years. The transformation from a doctrine with a single author to the recognition that architecture is a giant collective effort and the cooperative pursuit of a common goal. The transition from a strictly hierarchical structure and the linear organisation of procedures to an agile togetherness. The change from a centrally controlled authorship to a network of local centres of excellence. Change is, to this extent, an important component of our legacy. But where do we go from here? How will we shape the future of architecture?
