Design in Dialogue

Zurich, Switzerland

16th June 2022

Adam Caruso will be part of a discussion on the publication Design in Dialogue. The event will focus on how design is shaped through conversations across both practice and teaching. The round table will also include Freek Persyn, Charlotte Schaeben (51N4E, Newrope) and Veronika Harder (Harder Haas P.AG).

Design in Dialogue is the second book in Ruby Press' series Chapters, and includes an interview with Caruso St John on their work at Tate Britain.

The book edited by ETH Newrope, is split into two sections. The first, an investigation into the work of three practices 51N4E, Endeavour and Denkstatt. The second, a series of interviews with a range of European architects.

The interview was a space for practicing architects to share their methodologies and collaborative projects. Focused on specific works, the conversations give insight into their process of design. It features talks with Harder Haas, Atelier Bow-Wow, Lacol, and Studio Paola Viganò, among others.

Design in Dialogue has been selected as one of Stiftung Buchkunst's 25 most beautiful German books of 2022.

The book presentation will be held at Hochparterre Buecher, Wasserwerkstrasse 129, Zurich at 7pm. Registration to the event is required by e-mail: info@hochparterre-buecher.ch
