Burkard Meyer – Konkret/Concrete
The architects team, led by Urs Burkard and Adrian Meyer, has existed in this form since 1998. A large number of buildings that show consistent care and experimental spirit have emerged from the Baden office. Among them are significant projects such as the Dienstleistungs- und Verwaltungszentrum (Service-and Administration Centre) in Winterthur (1999/2005), the AZ Medienhaus (Media Building) in Aarau (2005), or the cemetery building in Zug (2005) with its strong design. A further, surprising station in an increasingly concise and reduced œuvre can be seen in the Berufsbildungszentrum (Professional Training Centre) Baden (2006).
The main section of the 200-page volume provides a detailed presentation of ten more recent buildings. The volume is supplemented by a topical discussion between Andrea Deplazes and Adrian Meyer and a complete catalogue of works with picture credits.
