In just ten years, the Europaallee district has grown up right next to Zurich main station – between Sihlpost and Langstrasse. The book describes its history from its beginnings to the present day from different perspectives. Plans drawn exclusively for the book provide a hitherto unknown overview of all construction sites. Texts by experts from various disciplines, portraits of local tradespeople and historical and newly taken photographs tell the story of the development of the city quarter in a variety of ways, both in words and pictures.
The result is a book to read and to look at, equally exciting for those interested in urban development as well as for a broader public.
“Gemisch, Gefüge, 76 Ginkgos: Europaallee Zürich”, published by Park Books, Zurich 2021. Now in bookshops.
