Publisher's description: Vincent Mangeat became internationally renowned in 1988 following the construction of his building for the Cantonal High School in Nyon. Influenced by his work experience in Paris, training under Jean Prouve and a spell as Assistant to Hans Brechbuhler and Pierre Foretay at the EPF Lausanne, Mangeat's work bridges the gap between two architectural eras, namely the Tessin Tendenza of the '70s and '90s architectural styles with their exponents in the German-speaking region of Switzerland. But his work has always remained independent and rooted in western Switzerland. From his first residential building in Evolene (1969) to his current projects, including a house for writers at the foot of the Jura mountains, his wealth of architectural achievements form a important a part of his life and work as his permanent, valuable teaching activity.
