Adam Caruso was interviewed for OASE Journal's edition on modernity. Emailing with the issue's editors, Tom Avermaete and Hans Teerds, he discusses the nuances of what it means to be 'modern' and how to engage with a cities architectural codes and conventions while adding to its definition of history.
These ideas are explored in relation to Caruso St John's Bremer Landesbank, Escher-Wyss Platz Office building and the Canterbury Cathedral Organ Loft.
Caruso St John's project for a new office building adjacent to the Hardbrücke viaduct in Zurich West will be completed at the end of November. Works to the office interiors and planting in the cantilevered balconies are complete, and ground floor retail units are currently being finished. Tenants will occupy the building early in the new year.
Adam Caruso contributes an essay to the Autumn 2020 issue of Superposition, discussing the modernities of Hannes Meyer and Hans Wittwer’s ADGB Trade Union School, and Jony Ive at Norman Foster's Apple Headquarters seen through the lens of Andreas Gursky.
