Studio Celine Baumann and Weyell Zipse Architekten were together selected to participate in the competition “Freiraum Rosental Mitte”. The oldest still operating area of Basel’s chemical industry between Messe and Badischer Bahnhof will be successively transformed into an integral attractive and mixed district with quality of life. We are looking forward to the exciting task of conceiving a strategy for the design of the streets, squares and green spaces, in order to define a “set of rules for the open space”.

“In the design “WohnJoker” we investigate the interaction of an “addition” of a new element in the experimental layout of an existing large housing complex of the 1970s. (…) The aim of the investigation is to design the future of the large housing complex out of its structure itself, i.e. to work not against but with the idea. The spaces and conceptual building typologies offer enough interpretative play and movement space to be reinvented and developed again and again.”

As part of the exhibition “Make Do With Now: New Directions in Japanese Architecture”, the Swiss Architecture Museum is organizing a series of informal talks events. We are very happy, to host the first part of the event series in our office location in the Basel harbor. From the Infotext of the S AM:
„Each event, which will take place in the workspace of a young practice based in Basel, brings together three practitioners working on similar themes in different locations: one from Japan, one the EU, and one from Switzerland. Short presentations of their work will be followed by an open-format discussion in which members of the audience are actively encouraged to take part. The first event in this series focuses on the ‘Everyday’. How does one interpret and evaluate the unspectacular scenery and situations of the everyday, and what tools are available to facilitate this process? What does it mean to design with the everyday life of a space beyond its completion in mind? And how might the everyday inspire a new form of aesthetics and ethics in architecture? These are some of the topics we are looking forward to discussing with our guests, who have been developing different approaches towards the quotidian in their work.”
On Sunday, 25th September 2022, the population of Binningen voted with clear majority to approve the budget of 48 Million CHF for the extension and renovation of the „Schulcampus Dorf“, including a re-design of the public outdoor spaces, to revalue this location in the historic core of Binningen as a public village center.

“Filling the Void: the death and life of the great European high street, explores the future of the high street through performance-led design. The studio look at the opportunity to test and re-imagine our town and city centres so that they can become places for everyone, whilst also questioning the role of the architect as someone who is both a designer and facilitator of events and conversations that can bring communities and stakeholders together to understand what a place can become.”

Christian Weyell is a guest critic at the Department of Design and Industrial Methods of Building Construction, Prof. i.V. Martin Baur and Florian Latsch at the TU Darmstadt, on Wednesday, 09 February 2022.
“By creating a central Federal Institute for Photography, the competences for restoration, archiving, conservation and digitisation of old photographs, which have so far been decentralised but diverse, are to be bundled in one place. The task is to design a centre of excellence for the preservation of Germany’s photographic and visual heritage.”
“An indoor swimming pool for Kleinbasel: The implementation of a new use in the form of an indoor swimming pool in an existing spatial structure should thus create places of liveability and a common identity for the Basel population. Concepts that create overlaps between different uses have proven to be viable. Thus, not only a swimming hall should be designed, but also a concept of use should be developed for the building as a whole with which it is associated.”
We are happy to announce that we have, together with Donet Schäfer Reimer Architekten and Studio Vulkan, received the second prize in the competition for a new primary school in Bottmingen, near BaselProject

Kai Zipse is a guest critic at the final reviews in the studio of Kawahara Krause at the University of Kassel, on Wednesday, 14th July 2021.
“Architektur bedarf einer stringenten Logik und kann dennoch Unschärfe zulassen. Flux Order will in der Vereinigung des scheinbar Gegensätzlichen das Ungewisse als Potential begreifen. „Architecture as Cave“ beschreibt Architektur, deren räumliches Potential die individuelle Aneignung erfordert. Dem gegenüber steht die „Architecture as Nest“, in der die räumliche Situation durch die Architektur konstruiert ist. Im Spannungsfeld dieser Dualität soll im Entwurf eine Struktur gefunden werden, die den Spielraum der Möglichkeiten zwischen definiert und aneignungsfähig auslotet und somit das Potential des Wandels zum Ausdruck bringt.”
Our project “Common Land” receives the 2nd prize in the competition for cooperative housing “Fleur de la Champagne” in Biel.Project
Kai Zipse will be a guest critic at the final reviews in the studio of Assemble at the EPFL in Lausanne, on Tuesday, 1st June 2021.
“This studio is founded on the belief that an understanding of how things are made brings an intimate engagement with the problems and possibilities of the real world. We are interested in the material life of buildings, how we process the fabric of our environments to construct spaces. From local resources to global trade; vernacular methods and new technology and auxiliary industrial processes -we will consciously appraise our materials.”
Weyell Zipse is part of the publication “image [im-ij] \ ˈim-ij \” by Archaic Studio.
“A design and communication tool, the image remains a decisive and crucial step in the definition of any project, whether it materializes through its construction or persists under the form of paper architecture.
With Image, Anja Dotter invites us to feel the pulse of a young guard of European architects by questioning them about their relationship to images.
Through a series of interviews with emerging architects, photographers and image makers, Image highlights and confronts different approaches to the architectural image in a world where it circulates, travels and is shared more than ever!”
