    Full Description

    Founded in Zurich in 2008 by architect Christian Penzel and structural engineer Martin Valier, Penzel Valier have established themselves as one of Switzerland’s leading design firms. In 15 years, they have realised projects that uniquely demonstrate the interplay between the two disciplines. Their portfolio includes a wide range of different typologies, including transportation and infrastructure buildings, office and sports structures, as well as housing, interior design, and objects.

    This first monograph on Penzel Valier combines the fundamentals of their design principles with a presentation of their key buildings and projects. Essays by distinguished authors examine the firm’s work from different perspectives. A detailed illustrated complete catalogue of their built, unrealised, and ongoing projects since 2007–2024 rounds off this beautiful volume.
