Stiftung Bibliothek Werner Oechslin

Established in 1998 in Einsiedeln, 40 kilometres south of Zurich, the Stiftung Bibliothek Werner Oechslin is a research library that brings librarianship and in-depth research of texts and sources into constant dialogue. Since 2006, it has been housed in a building designed by the architect Mario Botta, where its more than fifty thousand volumes are arranged as close as possible to the user and within sight. The library collection, which originated from the private collection of the scholar and academic Werner Oechslin, includes volumes on art and architecture but also on mathematics, physics, theology, history and astronomy. The Library organises courses – including a renowned International Summer Course on the Baroque –, seminars and round tables, publishes annotated editions of rare or out-of-print texts, conference proceedings, studies on the history and theory of architecture and the history of science, and documents its research activities, new acquisitions and initiatives in the journal 'Scholion'. The Library collaborates closely with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH) and is affiliated to the Swiss Academy of Humanities and Social Sciences (SAGW) and the Swiss Academy of Technical Sciences (SATW).

Werner Oechslin has been a member of the Scientific Board of the CISA Andrea Palladio since 1992.
