Swiss architect, artist and writer Alfred Roth has died at the age of 95. Described as 'one of the last of the original generation of international modern architects', Roth worked briefly with Le Corbusier in 1927 and later collaborated with Marcel Breuer and Alvar Aalto. With his cousin he formed the practice Alfred and Emil Roth, whose best-known buildings were the Doldertal apartment blocks in Zurich. In the uk, Roth was chiefly known for the exhibition on Swiss architecture that he curated at the riba in 1946 and for his books, including The New Architecture in 1939 and a book on the New School in 1950. In 1948 he became an honorary member of the riba, and his autobiography was published in 1985.
