Peter Märkli is one of Switzerland’s leading architects. He is currently also professor of Architecture and Technology at ETH Zurich. Märkli’s un­con­ven­tio­nal ap­proach, com­bi­ned with his un­der­stan­ding of ma­te­ri­als and color, make him a uni­que fi­gure in con­tem­porary Eu­ro­pean ar­chi­tec­ture. The ele­men­tal, al­most “archaic” qua­lity of Märkli's work is in­flu­en­ced by a wide va­riety of sour­ces, in­clu­ding Greek an­ti­quity, the Re­nais­sance, the sim­ple farm­hou­ses of the Po Val­ley, Af­ri­can and Me­xi­can art, and Matisse's pain­tings.
Peter Markli will be interviewed by Jan Schevers. A video of this interview will be shown to the public on thursday 3 november and will appear on the videos page soon after.
