Chipperfield set to look tall in Switzerland

David Chipperfield Architects will join six eminent international practices in a competition to design Switzerland's tallest tower.

The London-based practice will face stiff competition from three Swiss firms - Herzog & de Meuron, Burkhardt & Partner and Gigon/Guyer - together with MAP Architectos from Barcelona, Sauerbruch Hutton Architekten from Berlin and Malaysia-based Hamzah & Yeang.

The competition, to design the 125m high-rise offices for Maag Holdings, is a prominent part of Zurich's Maag Site regeneration.

The Maag Tower will accommodate its own 'in-house' railway station and provide a point of entry for the proposed Maag Village - a development of residential studios, shops, and businesses.

Outline designs will be assessed by a jury in September, before being unveiled to the public.
