Book launch: Texts on Architecture, 2014 – 2015
- Monday Oct 5 / 19:00, Desfours Palace
To mark World Architecture Day, the Kruh association will release its fifth anthology covering the years 2014–2015 and featuring architects and teachers from the prestigious ETH Zurich school of architecture who lectured in Prague as part of the “Swiss-Czech Inspirations” lecture series.
The publication includes interviews with and essays by inspirational architects who teach students from around the world at this well- established school. The anthology’s contributors include architects (Christian Kerez, Fabio Gramazio, Tom Emerson, Adam Caruso, Andrea Deplazes, Martino Tattara) as well as professors and theorists of architecture (Philip Ursprung, Ákos Moravánszky, Laurent Stalder, Vesna Jovanović). Other ETH personalities include structural engineer Joseph Schwartz, researcher Toni Kotnik, and landscape architect Günther Vogt.
The publication also looks at the Kruh association’s activities organized in 2014 and 2015 in cooperation with ETH Zurich’s Department of Architecture (lectures, working groups, excursions). The anthology is being published in October 2015 with support from the Partnership Fund (Swiss-Czech Cooperation Program).
