Clockwork Embassy Cameroon – 14 May 2012
The design of the new Swiss Embassy in Yaoundé pays tribute to its renewed presence in the Cameroon and a respect for the uniqueness of the site. The resulting proposal is an elegant ensemble that encapsulates the identity and self-image of the Swiss people and their values. As a result the core concepts that guide this proposal are an expression of Swiss traditional know-how, and an understanding of what the Embassy can represent and achieve.

French Embassy Beijing – added 4 Apr 2012
“The very image of French rigor and elegance, the building has come to represent France on Chinese soil. With a garden at its heart, the 20,000m2 embassy consists of the Chancellery, Consulate, diplomatic residence and private apartments of the Ambassador. Innovative functionality and a bioclimatic design are the result of a site-specific architectural approach and the requirements of a changing world.”
