    Full Description

    Esch Sintzel Architekten, founded in Zurich in 2008, is one of the most influential voices in contemporary Swiss architecture. The range of the firm’s award-winning designs includes varied typologies such as infrastructure buildings, schools, and market halls. Yet, at the core of their work, are housing projects in which challenging circumstances often lead to the emergence of very specific solutions and qualities to the benefit of both the individual house or apartment and the city as a whole. Esch Sintzel Architekten’s work is characterised by the prudent use of available resources as well as great respect for the existing fabric and its careful further development. The virtuoso mastery of structural means enables them to translate technical requirements into expressive, beautiful designs.

    This monograph offers a comprehensive survey of Esch Sintzel Architekten’s entire body of work, exploring its full range and drilling down to constructive details, and placing it in a wider context. It features all the realised designs and a selection of projects through plans, images and texts.

    Text in English and German.
