David Chipperfield Architects
David Chipperfield Architects has revealed this towering scheme, which earned the practice a place on the seven-strong shortlist to design Switzerland’s tallest skyscraper in Zurich. Swiss practice Gigon/Guyer has now been announced as the outright winner of the competition to design 125m high-rise offices for Maag Holdings. It also saw off stiff competition from two other Swiss practices - Herzog & de Meuron and Burkhardt & Partner - together with MAP Architectos from Barcelona, Sauerbruch Hutton Architekten from Berlin, and Hamzah & Yeang from Malaysia. 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.
