Überlandstrasse intersects Dübendorf's Ringstrasse at Zürich's periphery. Upon arriving here, the unexpected view at the traffic light in this no-mans-land is like a refreshing taste of mountain spring water: The new Eawag head office at the ETH's Empa-Eawag Campus speaks distinctively for itself, outshining its environs like a precious gem.
Booklet 9 of the Edition Rene Furer presents Forum Chriesbach, a "zero-energy building" in Dübendorf, that has set new standards for sustainable development in architecture, for which it has won numerous awards. Through his synoptic comparison with well-known architectural projects from the 20th and 21st century, the author has created an unforgettable and eminently readable booklet, rich in exciting and surprising illustrations.
