about

Rising dramatically above the spectacular Swiss landscape surrounding the well-known resort Flims – Laax – Falera, Jürg Conzett’s unique mountain trail contains seven bridges crossing a wild stream. An internationally renowned civil engineer, Conzett has brought his considerable talent and experience to this project and the results are groundbreaking and visually appealing. Each bridge uses a different type of construction and building method depending on the specific geographic features of its location.
Wilfried Dechau has catalogued the project with over one-hundred previously unpublished images of the bridges and their surrounding landscape. His atmospheric photographs provide readers with a beautiful and up-close look at both the striking architecture amid the beautiful wilderness. Also included in this book are sketches and plans by Conzett and a series of essays by Dechau, Conzett, Ursula Baus, Christian Dettwiler, and Jürg Marquart.
Wilfried Dechau has for many years been chief editor of Deutsche Bauzeitung. He is a working photographer and owns the photo gallery f75 in Stuttgart, Germany.
