contributed by Roderick

The Leutschenbach School (Schulhaus Leutschenbach) is located in the north of Zurich. Designed by architect Christian Kerez, aimed to offer a completely new dimension for learning, this building has brought all the function zones under one roof and one next to another: classrooms, meeting rooms, the cafeteria, the music room and even the gym hall. To highlight the architectural creation, the gym hall is designed to be on the top floor instead of submerged under the earth. The statics of the building is provided by a steel structure and an embedded slab which is supported on only six points. These form the foundation for the large gym hall and ensure the building to be completely earthquakes resistant.

A fantastic building. A must see on any trip to Zurich! Joseph Schwartz, the structural engineer, deserves significant recognition for this and other projects by Kerez.
