Glatt!

This new book offers an exciting new vision of urbanism that can be inspirational for architects and city planners worldwide.

In 2012 the Architects Group Krokodil published the book Glatt! Manifest für eine Stadt im Werden, a manifesto for urban planning that offered a bold vision of the future development of the Glatt valley, a booming suburban region northeast of Zurich. In association with this new approach to urban development, Architects Group Krokodil and ETH Zurich put together the 2012 International Summer Academy Zurich, in which participants came together to focus their work on the revitalization of the Glatt valley. Glatt! From Suburb to City? presents the results of this meeting through text and images. The first section of the book is an overview of the lecture series, while further sections document the studio work created during the course. Although focused on the challenges of designing for the Zurich suburbs, this volume offers an exciting new vision of urbanism that can be inspirational for architects and city planners worldwide.
With texts by Architects Gruop Krokodil; Marc Angélil; Emanuel Christ and Christop Gantenbein; Angelus Eisinger; Andreas Ruby; André Bideau; Markus Schaefer
