The Strategic Plan developed by Christ & Gantenbein and EM2N @em2n_architekten_ag , with Maurus Schifferli Landschaftsarchitekt #maurusschifferlilandschaftsarchitekt , Cabane Partner #cabanepartner and EWP AG for the "Wolf Areal" in Basel involves the redevelopment of a 16-hectare brownfield site, close to the SBB Station in Basel. The backbone of the project is given by a 1km perimeter block development able to bring together a variety of uses (housing, retail, offices, leisure and light manufacturing), while creating a protected courtyard to overcome the main challenge of the site: noise pollution engendered by the surrounding railway and highway infrastructure. The building stock on the site has heterogeneous heritage value, the plan embraces the preservation and adaptive reuse of key architectural assets in order to maximise their identity-making potential and to used as urban catalysts during the long term development of the area. The elongated protected courtyard encircled by the built block will serve as a meeting point, offering the chance for a variety of appropriations and uses for a mixed public and inhabitants.

SAVE THE DATE: this Friday 15 February at 7pm at the COAC @coacarxiu in Barcelona opens the exhibition "Unveiled Affinities: Quaderns in Europe", on the occasion Christoph Gantenbein will engage in conversation with Cino Zucchi as well as Josep Luis Mateo, Marta Cervelló and Dominique Boudet. The exhibition explores unrecorded ties between pages of the magazine Quaderns d’Arquitectura i Urbanisme (period 1981-1991) and current architectures of its former readers, who were still students back then, and today are acknowledged architects from across Europe. In the image, the first built project by Christ & Gantenbein, a housing building near Zurich, which is evoked in the office's contribution to the exhibition.

With their generous circular openings, the suspended bridges in the new University Hospital in Zurich provide a horizontal connection to spaces with similar functions (intensive-care and operation units) in the two buildings. The wide passages also house the “lounges”, light filled spaces easily accessible to patients and staff, to relax and socialize while enjoying the view from above.

Open from today, 8.01 until 8.02.2019 in the Townhall-IV in Zurich, the exhibition presenting Christ & Gantenbein’s winning project for the renovation and extension of the University Hospital. “We are not building a hospital but a neighborhood”, with this statement the architects highlight the ambition of the project to positively impact the current urban arrangement of the whole area, building a technically advanced and extremely performing health facility that can also serve the city as a vital architecture able to engage patients and residents alike. The first phase of the project proposes the creation of two new buildings carefully connected to the existing structure and inspired by a courtyard typology. The latter fulfills demanding spatial requirements while maintaining easy crossing for city-users, providing attractive new public spaces in full harmony with the existing urban fabric.
