Luigi Snozzi, 1932-2020
Luigi Snozzi was Professor of Architecture at the EPFL from 1987 to 1997. His teaching has left a deep imprint on a generation of architects who have built widely in the last 20 years in Romandy. In 2010, an exhibition at Archizoom was dedicated to his work, and his legacy.
The tribute we are paying to him through this website includes his aphorisms as he presented them in the exhibition, with their illustrations.
The video testimonies from the individuals who knew him, and worked with him, constitute a collective memory drawing the sensitive contours that form the man, the architect and the teacher that he was.Luigi Snozzi has left us. To remember him, we would like to look back together at his lessons in architecture.
Many thanks to Eloisa Vacchini, Anne-Catherine Javet, Valérie Ortlieb and Christian Gilot, to Teresa Cheung, Tiago Borges, Silvia Groaz and Clémence Dubuis for the idea and realisation of this website, and to Bastien Gysler for the development of the site.
