The Zürich-based firm Galli Rudolf Architekten has built a range of projects in housing, mixed-use developments, and schools and has garnered acclaim for its innovation in integrating and preserving historic buildings in the midst of large rebuilding or redevelopment projects. This volume is the first to take a detailed look at the firm. A wealth of plans, images, and diagrams are complemented by a series of essays that take up the architects’ education, cultural interests and interactions with artists, their focus on community, and, crucially, their strategies for organizing space—and using space to frame projects at the urban periphery and maintain historical continuity even in the midst of change.
