Full Description

ETH Zurich’s new building LEE is an extraordinary project from both an urban planning and an architectural design perspective. Located on a slope above the heart of town, it sits very prominently close to the historic main buildings of ETH Zurich and the University of Zürich that form the “Crown of the Town”. In terms of construction, Zürich-based architect Fawad Kazi has been breaking new ground.

Accordingly, this new monograph is structured in three sections focusing on these three aspects: integration into urban context; design and construction and materialisation of the precast concrete structure; and a comprehensive documentation of the entire building with images and plans. Topical essays look at specific aspects of the project. Contributions by the architect, the engineers, and by their client round out the book, which offers a comprehensive insight into the creation of a building appearing at once plain and highly complex.

Text in English and German.
