Vrin inhabitants and the economics professor Peter Rieder believed in the centuries-old economic basis of the village and developed a model of how a village can survive with mountain farming.

Gion A. Caminada translated what is economically preconceived and socially supported into architecture. Simplicity in wood - those are the signature structures typical for Vrin, a construction he has further developed. In 1998, the Grisons mountain village was awarded the Wakker Prize and in 2010 a "European Village Renewal Award” for holistic, sustainable and motto-oriented village development of outstanding quality.

Vrin is the starting point for visits to the Greina plateau which is described as the unique natural landscape of Switzerland.
