Stanton Williams is the only non-Swiss firm to make it onto the shortlist to design a new physics building for ETH Zurich in Switzerland

The practice, which won the 2012 Stirling Prize for its laboratory at the University of Cambridge, has teamed up with Basel-based Stähelin Architekten on its competition submission. 

The British firm is up against Swiss firms mlzd Architekten, former Herzog & de Meuron star Harry Gugger, Boltshauser Architekten, and EM2N

The international competition called for proposals for a new 15,000m2 laboratory and research building for the university’s Hönggerberg campus just outside Zurich. 

The building, which will feature specialist research facilities including laboratories, teaching spaces and offices, will be located to the north west of the campus’ new masterplan. 

The teams have also been asked to draw up plans for a second building to sit next to the new physics lab which could be part of a phased construction programme. 

The winning scheme will be announced in June 2016.
