Students in studio Adam Caruso at ETH Zurich will spend their Spring semester exploring the protestant churches of Zurich; spiritual, social and spatial public resources that are underused in the city.
Over the course they will look at the historically and architecturally rich fabric of these churches, closely surveying the physical at the same time as speculating how the tangible and the spiritual co-exist. They will equally engage with the church's current social programmes.
Emilie Appercé, Tibor Bielicky, Adam Caruso, Claudio Schneider and Barbara Thüler will teach on the course.
