Kunsthaus Extension | Art Museum

Project facts
  • Address: Heimplatz 6, 8001 Zürich
  • Area: District 1
  • Architect: David Chipperfield Architects, London
  • Space: 11'520 m2
  • Completition: 2017
The Kunsthaus Zurich, originally designed by the Swiss architect Karl Moser, was built between 1904 and 1910 and is situated on the south side of Heimplatz, a square in Zurich’s city centre. David Chipperfield Architects was appointed to design an extension to the existing museum building on the opposite side of the square. The new building will display a collection of classic modernism, the Bührle Collection, temporary exhibitions and a contemporary art collection starting from the 1960s. A passageway running underneath the square links the Kunsthaus with the new extension. Together with the Schauspielhaus (theatre) on the east side of the square, the museum buildings will form a ‘gateway to the arts’.

Well even if Switzerland is home to two of the world’s leading architecture Schools (ETH Zurich, 10th and Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne 17th), the local architecture is compared to the arabic and the asian world pretty unexcited. It seems like swiss architects focus a lot on timelessness. I think they could use a bit more dutch inspiration.
What I apreciate here is that the quality of materials and facades is very high.

Escher Terrassen | Zürich West

Project facts
  • Address: Hardturmstrasse 3, 8005 Zürich
  • Area: District 5
  • Architect: E2A, Zürich
  • Tower Height: 60m
  • Completition: 2014
Terraced housing refers to the countless suburban proposals seeking to maximize views with their slopes. Surprisingly, these proposals are often far removed from an uncompromising belief in the city. They line the outskirts of urban configurations, jostling to assert themselves. In our cities, views and panoramas are not part of an urban agenda.

Swiss National Museum | Extension

Project facts
  • Address: Museumstrasse 2, 8001 Zürich
  • Area: District 1
  • Architects: Christ & Gantenbein
  • Area: 7'400 m2
  • Opening: 1. August 2016
The expansion to the National Museum Zurich (Landesmuseum) complements the original museum building of 1898 designed by the architect Gustav Gull. The new wing is located on the side adjoining the Platzspitz Park. The old and new buildings are directly coupled to each other so as to form an architectural and urban ensemble. The historical and modern building elements successfully confront each other. The new building directly incorporates some of the context’s existing features into its architecture. The building’s layout accommodates the trees and paths of the historical park, and the characteristic roofscape of the old building sets the volumetric theme of the new structure. The expressive folds in the rooftops can be understood as a contemporary interpretation of Gull’s articulated Historicism. The new is thus inconceivable without the old, but is nonetheless unmistakably modern.

Haus zum Falken | Calatrava

Project facts
  • Address: Kreuzbühlstrasse 1, 8008 Zürich
  • Area: District 8 (next to "Stadelhofen" Station)
  • Architect: Santiago Calatrava
  • Offices - Retail - Bike Station (for 1000 bicycles)
  • Completition: 2018

Santiago Calatrava has unveiled plans for a new office building in the city center of Zurich, Switzerland. The new five-story building will be integrated into Stadelhofen Station, the transit hub and city landmark also designed by Calatrava in 1990.
Commissioned by Swiss insurer AXA, the new building is envisioned as part of an initiative to expand transit-oriented design in the Swiss city and increase connectivity throughout the metro area. Nearly 80,000 commuters travel through Stadelhofen Station each day, many of whom are cyclists. This has caused the plaza space in front of the station to become overcrowded with bicycles. Calatrava’s design will directly address this problem by including approximately 1,000 underground parking spaces specifically for bikes.
Calatrava was selected by AXA for “his commitment to innovative, functional design and to ensure consistency with the adjacent station’s architecture and appropriateness within the surrounding city fabric.”

The building comes after Zurich’s City Council passed new development regulations on the project’s site of Kreuzbühlstrasse 1, allowing for the construction of “an avant-garde building that would provide bicycle parking for both neighborhood riders and station users.”

Calatrava’s redesign of Stadelhofen Station opened in 1990, becoming the first rapid-transit system to be built in Switzerland. It has since become the country’s seventh busiest rail station as well as one of eight railway stations worldwide designed by Calatrava.

Escherpark | E2A

Project facts
  • Address: Scheideggstrasse 65, 8002 Zürich
  • Area: District 2
  • Architect: E2A
  • Completition: 2016

The site of the Escherpark building, a clearly defined block just outside of Zurich’s city center, is located in the immediate vicinity of numerous cultural institutions and spacious parks. With several schools and recreational areas within walking distance and a physical relationship to the nearby lake, the opportunely situated area is ideal for a residential development. The Escherpark project new construction reacts to the local, semi-urban struc- ture of irregularly scaled, detached buildings and develops an ensemble of eleven buildings out of four unique volume types.

Swissmill Tower | tallest (and most controversial) grain silo in the world

Project facts
  • Address: Sihlquai 300, 8005 Zürich
  • Area: District 5
  • Architect: Marcel Knörr
  • Hight: 118 m
  • Completed: 2016

From the Swissmill-website:
In February 2011, the voting citizens of the City of Zurich agreed to the extension of the Swissmill grain silo with a majority vote of 58.3%. Thanks to this decision, Swissmill can look to the future and achieve the necessary silo capacity at the processing site while using the most environmentally friendly option. The vote in favour of the «Kornhaus» also represents a commitment to the city's milling business which goes back more than 170 years. It also represents a boost for the local food industry.
