Over a period of 19 years, the City of Zurich Building Authority organised 75 architectural competitions for non-profit housing resulting in the construction of 6,000 apartments and contributing to the excellent reputation of residential development in Zurich.
The floor plan manual not only provides a record of the winning competitions projects, but also shows the wide range of innovative designs that both challenge and promote the examination of unconventional and creative concepts with suitability and function at the forefront.
