Embassy of Switzerland,

A-platz Architects+Grue Landscape

A project that stands out for its resilience for the Swiss embassy.

The Swiss embassy project is an opportunity to develop an exemplary form of construction: resilient, efficient and simple.

We propose a clear geometry formed by two squares in plan based on a regular grid, and a construction method based on local accessible knowledge, which could be executed by local builders.
