Designers: Vetschpartner Landschaftsarchitekten AG, Zurich Foster + Partners, London Itten + Brechbühl AG, Zurich Location: Zurich, Switzerland Commissioned by Dolder Hotel AG Area: 17 500 m2 Design: 2003-2006 Implementation: 2006-2008 This unique hotel, situated between the pulsating city and invigorating nature, calls for a sensitive approach to the open space areas.

Now, we see the realised project from Hapa Collective that is set to revitalize a narrow but critical linkage in the urban fabric of downtown London. Hapa’s proposal (entitled Figure Ground) utilized a simple concept and austere palette of materials to animate the Lane, and provide a venue for the upcoming World Figure Skating Championships and the imminent arrival of Fanshawe College’s Digital Media Arts program on the west edge of the Lane.
