Caruso St John Architects celebrates 30 years in practice with a new website, Instagram, and a special online event hosted by the Architecture Foundation.
On the occasion of our 30th anniversary we visit two projects by the practice. The House in Lincolnshire from 1994 was the first completely new structure that we built. We talk to the clients about living there and about making the rich setting that now encompasses the house. Our second visit is to the Swiss Life Arena in Zurich, where the in situ concrete exposed shell of the building is currently being built.
The visits feature Tibor Bielicky, Adam Caruso, Lorenzo Iandelli, Adriana Müller, Eva Janusch, Michael Schneider, and Peter St John from the practice, and the event is moderated by Nana Biamah-Ofosu and Ellis Woodman.
Facade mock-ups for Caruso St John's Swiss Life Arena have been photographed as part of Canadian artist David K. Ross' new publication Archetypes.
Theatrically lit at night and isolated from their surroundings, the compilation of photos aims to demonstrate how pre-constructed architectural components have become a charged form of proto-architecture.
Construction continues on the Swiss Life Arena, the new home for the ZSC Lions ice hockey team, and Caruso St John's largest project to date. The in situ concrete exposed shell of the building is currently being built and the project is set to complete in 2022.
Following a period of isolation at the start of the Lockdown, Adam Caruso met host Matthew Blunderfield online to discuss teaching at ETH Zurich, the work of Pierre Huyghe, and the series of monographs on lesser-known Modernist architects he co-edits with with his partner, Helen Thomas.

To celebrate its anniversary, the Heong Gallery has created a video looking back at the five years since its transformation from an Edwardian stable block into a public gallery showing modern and contemporary art.
Adam Caruso participated in the 2020 Bauwelt Kongress, with a lecture entitled 'What is it Worth?', on reading the city and speculating about what its future might hold. The lecture will be followed by a conversation with Kaye Geipel and Lina Ghotmeh.
