Schaerer Residential Building – 23 Jan 2013
In the centre of Erlenbach, a town on the edge of Lake Zurich, a new housing building has been constructed on the premises of the Schärer Erlenbach company. The former factory, where machines for the textile industry were produced and which used to be so important for the region, has also received a new front building.

Liestal Office Building
A new impressive retail and office building has been created at the Liestal Station Square. The striking six-storey building occupies the triangular site between the station and the head office of Basellandschaftliche Kantonalbank (BLKB). The constrictions of the site meant that the building’s footprint had to be smaller than its upper storeys, resulting in a downward tapering shape, and the dark anthracite-coloured concrete conveys a sense of robustness and stability at this dynamic location.

Ruta del Peregrino – 23 Oct 2012
Each year around two millions of people set out on their pilgrimage through the Mexican county of Jalisco, along the 117 km of the Ruta del Peregrino. The route of their pilgrimage leads them from the city of Ameca, over the mountain to the shrine of the Holy Virgin of Talpa.
Nine landmarks are the outcome of this process, among these places to rest and places of contemplation, designed by Dellekamp Arquitectos, Rozana Montiel (Periférica), Alejandro Aravena (Elemental), HHF architects, Luis Aldrete, Tatiana Bilbao, Ai Weiwei (Fake Design), Godoylab and Christ & Gantenbein.
