Andrea Deplazes / CH

The award-winning architect Andrea Deplazes, professor of architecture and construction at ETH Zurich, is among other things the author of the recognized “bible” of architects on building construction – Architektur konstruieren. Vom Rohmaterial zum Bauwerk. Ein Handbuch. He received his degree in 1988 from the ETH in Zurich and in the same year founded his own architecture studio Bearth & Deplazes together with Valentin Bearth. For Deplazes, architecture is an interweaving of plan and practice. According to him, it should be freed from dogmas and individual handwriting, he understands it as a series of possibilities and challenges. Together with his students, he designed the Monte Rosa chalet in the Swiss Alps – a unique center of technological innovation and a shelter for climbers in one. The structure nicknamed the mountain crystal is located at an altitude of 2883 meters. It is not accessible by car or cable car, so only the most dedicated fans of contemporary architecture will see it. Deplazes is also known for his non-traditional designs of houses made of various materials, from wooden constructions to concrete new constructions. He accepted the invitation from Kruh in 2014 and had a lecture together with his colleague Joseph Schwartz.
