Making Architecture: Projects from the First Year Course
Publication Date 1 Jan 2010
OverviewCatching the very first instant of nascent space, Making Architecture shows how young architects at the ETH Zurich are developing their relation to the substance of architecture, concentrating on the embedded, the implicit filigrane or massive potential contained in materials. This publication reveals scaleless creations, fragile architectures, subtle objects, re-opening a field thought to be fully explored. Echoing the works of Bauhaus, Prof. Andrea Deplazes, Chair of Architecture and Technology, investigates the fundamentals of architecture anew, unlocking the potency and poetry of materiality.
