Architecture in Italy’s northern-most province Alto Adige, or South Tyrol as the largely German-speaking region is also known, has boomed for the past three decades. Many local architects have gained much international recognition and acclaim for their designs that show a great sense of location and materialization.

New Architecture in South Tyrol 2012–2018 highlights fifty-nine buildings in the region, realized between 2012 and 2018, that exemplify the particular qualities of local contemporary architecture. The selection, put together by an international jury, documents a vast range of typologies in all parts of South Tyrol through images, plans, and concise texts. It offers a comprehensive survey of recent architectural trends and developments in this alpine environment and allows for international comparison. The book is a lavishly illustrated and up-to-date portrait of a region with a lively and innovative architecture scene that is rooted in a rich tradition of craftsmanship. It is published to coincide with the exhibition at Kunst Meran, Switzerland.
