Following the success of the Hansjörg Göritz Architekturstudio in an international European competition of the year 2000, seven years of planning and implementation are now completed. Today the built exterior and interior spaces manifest not only his interpretation of democratic separation of powers within the Alamannic cultural region of the Alps’ Rhine River valley. They also stand for a conscious understanding of an architecture of urban contiguity, whereby the original masterplan of Luigi Snozzi has been newly reinterpreted.

context elevation

At the same time the pure and meticulous materialization of the new context rejects generic easy conventions, and strive for an architecture of space and timelessness. It is this very elementary and sustainably durable quality that makes use of non-renewable resources according to rigorous Minergy-Standards. In the plenum the sublime art of Sabine Laidig creates a synthesis with this space creation of simplicity.

  • Commentator

    Thumbs up for showing the details!

  • fokt

    Wow.

  • Ricardo

    WOWOW

  • Alex

    Wow, what an unmitigated disaster. Beige brick on everything like poor 70′s modernism! It looks like the awful kind of low-budget government buildings and schools and churches we have scores of in South Texas. Yikes.

    • H. Roark

      Well if thats crap architecture in south Texas I’m moving to Texas.

    • R Goldschmidt

      By the way, 70′s modernist? Come on Dude. Learn some history my friend. Looks more like Venturi, then Corbusier modernism.

  • The Big Black & White Zebra

    One of the very best buildings on the site…
    When you think of what the Scottish Parliament’s says about its Government – excess and gaseous verbosity expressed by Miralles’ architecture, the people from this tiny principality have created a project of unparalleled strength from the most mundane of building materials.
    Now I do not profess to be knowledgeable in the principalities style of traditional architecture, but in the dark recesses of my mind I have some recognition of the steeply pitched roofs and strips of small horizontal windows. This is tradition continued and translated in a most imaginative form.
    That this building lives equally with the grandeur of the original carved stone buildings says much for its strength of design…
    A great acheivement

    Seems a hokey pastiche of 1950′s, early 60′s contextualism/empiricism with Arne Jacobsen detailing.

    if those are really bricks, they give an engineering work which is nice to appreciate, and even more with ornamentation lack spaces and lines so clean. The size of the “triangle” with an upper acute angle and no windows, makes a difference in the place

  • oltmann

    WOWOWO!!!

  • http:/www.breeree.com/ Todd

    Yes, I concur, timeless and outstanding!

  • dimis

    This is amazing!

    The attention to detais is incredible, even the retaining wall is thoroughly designed.

    Top notch work.
