Swiss architect Roger Diener

"The architect scene has changed a lot since I was a young architect", explains the Swiss architect Roger Diener. "Today, young architects have to be much more focused and really concentrate on their work because the field is almost too open for them. While my generation of architect found the field too narrow, our challenge was fighting to extend the barriers."

Roger Diener took over the Swiss architecture practice his father founded. Known for their subtle, sophisticated Modernist buildings and town plans, Diener and Diener have recently begun to design buildings that add a new lightness and liveliness to the geometric rigor and intellectual clarity that have always characterized their designs.
