Fawad Kazi

ETH Zürich Building LEE

In 2014, ETH Zurich unveiled LEE, a stunning addition to the historic university district commonly known as the “crown of the city.” Ten years in the works, LEE is the culmination of plans by the young architect Fawad Kazi, chosen in a public competition. A monument to architecture and urban planning, LEE’s ten stories and three mezzanines offer innovative new office and teaching spaces while simultaneously enhancing the urban surroundings.
Fawad Kazi: ETH Zurich Building LEE fully documents the realization of this extraordinary project with contributions from the client, ETH Zurich; the engineers; and the architect himself. Richly illustrated, the book includes a comprehensive documentation of the entire building, including many technical details and three hundred plans and images—many in full color. Among the topics discussed are the construction challenges posed by the massive precast concrete structure, the role of sustainability in the new building, and LEE’s tremendously successful integration into its urban context.
