Equal parts fashion, design and architecture, the collaboration between family-run specialty fashion store Weinberg and the noted modernist Swiss architect/ design team Trix + Robert Haussmann began in the 1980s. Over 25 years together they captured the zeitgeist of the times. The plans, drawings and architectural photographs featured in Haussmann für Weinberg shed light on six projects in which Trix + Haussmann shaped the stores as well as developed atmospheric and innovative concepts for fashion brands such as Lanvin and Courrèges. Richly illustrated with historical news clippings and company brochures, the publication includes a conversation between art historian Gabriel Schaad, Trix + Robert Haussmann, and the architect duo Isa Stürm and Urs Wolf, who renovated the Weinberg women’s boutique in late 2014 as the book went to press.
