about this item

The newest campus of the Zurich University of the Arts was, until very recently, a dairy factory, known for its signature yogurt—packed in instantly recognizable small brown glass jars. After production was relocated to elsewhere in Switzerland in 2000, the enormous plant, located in a fast-changing former industrial neighborhood, was home to clubs and restaurants, as well as artists, who found the plant’s vast spaces perfect for studios.
           
In 2006, Zurich University of the Arts began working with architects EM2N to transform the building into the university’s new home, which opened in 2014, as well as into a public place. This richly illustrated book documents that process, as well as the renovated building—which fills the original structure with a state-of-the-art educational infrastructure offering studios, offices, lecture and concert halls, a movie theater, galleries, a museum, restaurants, a music venue, and even one hundred apartments.
