Max Dudler, Gigon/Guyer, David Chipperfield. Office buildings in Europaallee 21. Zurich

The block is inserted into the Europaallee Quarter urban plan, which is being developed in the former railway lots close to Zürich city centre. The four-volume complex, designed by three architecture practices: Max Dudler, Gigon / Guyer Architekten and David Chipperfield Architects, is mainly for administration purposes. It also includes a retail ground floor and a public open courtyard which may be accessed from all four facades.
The unique feature of dividing up the plot into four sub-plots, which share modula­tion yet which nevertheless offer their own interpretation of the office building on the facade, is a way of enriching the setting, of multiplying the views of the volume, and of laying out a textured slice of the city, encompassing the complexity inher­ent in European cities.
The four office buildings are connected on their upper storeys and a continuous gallery crosses them at first-floor level, running around the perimetre of the building.
