Zurich-based architect couple Annette Gigon and Mike Guyer are known for creating spaces that inspire and allow for intense contemplation. In the spirit of the duo's previous work--the Kirchner Museum at Davos, the renovation of the Winterthur art museum, and the extension of the Winterthur's Oskar Reinhart collection--their new museum project at Appenzell also exhibits a powerful, idiosyncratic sense of aesthetics. The Liner Museum, dedicated to the Appenzell painters Carl August and Carl Walter Liner--father and son, respectively--presents itself as a sculptural design: the very antithesis of prescriptive postmodern museum architecture that threatens to draw attention away from the exhibits, Gigon and Guyer's edifice displays the imperatives of clear stereometrics and neutral spaces. Here, the architects have succeeded in integrating the new structure into its rural surroundings and vice versa. This book features the Liner Museum, completed in 1998, in a photographic sequence by the gifted architectural photographer Gaston Wicky.
