For the very first time in 2010, E.A.T. brought together international art and architecture professionals that took part in chaired panel discussions. The participating experts addressed aspects and ideals of alpine architecture and art in terms of their own projects and how they relate to the situation and visions of the Engadin region.

Participating experts were Doug Aitken, Josiah Mcelheny, Simone Forti and Cerith Wyn Evans, and the architects Nina von Albertini, Bijoy Jain, Philippe Rahm, Camilo Restrepo and Hans-Jörg Ruch, a wide range of views are represented, each taking a different approach to the Engadin.

The discussions aimed to showcase the many ways in which the alpine region in general and the Engadin in particular can be perceived, as reflected in the many diverse proposals and completed projects by architects and artists.

Curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Beatrix Ruf.
