Tamedia Office Building
Shigeru Ban
Zürich, Switzerland

The use of wood in multi-storey buildings is an art form almost completely buried a hundred years ago. Reinforced concrete structures became the norm worldwide. In recent years, however, the sustainability debate has brought a renaissance to wood and an interest in large, urban, wooden structures has awakened. Shigeru Ban, well-known for his use of paper and paperboard, has built an office building in Zurich made entirely of wood, or to be more precise 2,000 m3 of Austrian spruce.

Offices for the Castilla León Government in Zamora
Alberto Campo Baeza
Castilla y León, Spain

Madrid-based architect Alberto Campo Baeza has created the new headquarters for the Castilla León region’s government, located in the ancient heart of the city facing Zamora’s old cathedral. The design offers a successful mix of glass minimalism and a smart site-location strategy. Like a Babushka doll the building’s first layer is an enclosing stonewall, then a garden of air and finally a completely transparent glass house.
