    Full Description

    Adolf Krischanitz is undoubtedly considered one of the most important representatives of the vibrant and widely regarded Viennese architectural scene in the 1980s and 1990s. A key work in the oeuvre of Krischanitz is the project Quai Zurich Campus, the headquarters of the Zurich Insurance Group (Zurich) on Mythenquai, which opened in 2021. It is also the final project implemented by Krischanitz’s Zurich branch. This book presents the hitherto unpublished project in detail, using plans and extensive series of images to shed light on Krischanitz’s architectural stance, which is based on creating something new from existing structures, as well as an inherent, deep-rooted cultural responsibility. The design approach is demonstrated with examples from distinct thematic fields and illustrated with construction details and quotes.

    Text in German.
