EM2N 'Im Viadukt' | Zürich

Production & Parts | duo | 2013

 

Products & Parts gives us a great opportunity to look at the design of "im viadukt" more closely. "Im Viadukt" is a building in the Northwest quarter of Zurich. Actually it are a lot of buildings glued together by an enormous railroad viaduct. We actually had a chance to visit this building a few years ago on a city trip.

 

For this course we are not trying to investigate the influence of the design on the context, but we zoom in to a specific corner. We try to find out what this corner (detail) means for the building, and reverse.

 

The end result is a nice booklet with the journey we made from reverse engineering the detail to the making of it.
