Description:

When Renzo Piano, who was awarded the Pritzker prize in 1998, designed the Fondation Beyeler museum in Riehen, near Basel, he truly created a home for art, and it was acclaimed throughout the world. After only two years, it is being extended and is due for completion in summer 2000. After the success of the first publication, a second revised and enlarged edition is being published. This will present the building from the first designs to its final completion, from the technical and construction details to its architectural history and landscape architecture. Also included is a documentation of the extension and new illustrations.
