Stirling Prize winner only overseas firm shortlisted for Zurich work

Stanton Williams is the only foreign architect to be shortlisted for a scheme in Switzerland to design a new physics building at a university in Zurich.

The firm has linked up with a number of Swiss firms including local practice Stähelin Architekten to bid for the work at ETH Zurich.

The university wants to build a 15,000sq m laboratory and research building for its Hönggerberg campus located just outside Zurich. The building will include laboratories, teaching spaces and offices.

The campus is being developed as a masterplan and shortlisted practices are also being asked to work up proposals for a potential second building adjacent to the physics building.

A winner is due to be announced this June.

The other shortlisted architects are Mlzd Architekten, Harry Gugger Studio, Boltshauser Architekten and EM2N.
