Arquitectura Viva 216: E2A
This issue’s main feature is the work of E2A Architects. The Zurich-based firm, headed by brothers Piet and Wim Eckert, combines the best of Swiss tradition with Dutch attitudes like ironic distancing and open-minded research. Three projects by the practice are profiled: the Taz Neubau, a publishing house in Berlin; Deaconry Bethanien, a mixed-used block in Zurich; and Campus Moos, a secondary school in Switzerland. Also in this issue, the restoration of the Neues Museum by David Chipperfield and the inauguration of the James-Simon-Galerie in Berlin, Piranesi’s work in Madrid, a critical examination of visualising ideas through modern drawing, and more.
