Full Description

In 2011, Zurich-based architect Fawad Kazi submitted the winning proposal for the rebuilding and extension of a hospital complex in the Swiss city of St Gallen. Over a period of ten years, a number of existing structures will undergo vast rebuilding and new ones will be added, transforming a park with individual buildings into a single continuous complex.

This new, eventually five-part monograph, documents this project in full detail. It highlights the significance of St Gallen’s urban design as well as the specific demands on architectural design and construction and on the hospital’s operations. Volume I features the project’s genesis and the initial new building, a pavilion structure housing a restaurant and, in the basement, an electrical substation.

Text in English and German.
