Zürich is growing. However, like many cities in Switzerland, Zürich has only few suitable expansion options that don’t cause further damage to the landscape. Therefore, for its future development, existing structures have to be made more compact and the last remaining enclaves have to be developed, such as the rail operations area known as “Europaallee” at Zürich railway station. This creates a new density in the city, which must go hand in hand with a new standard of urban development. In relation to this, Europaallee and its contemporaneity, size and especially standards are exemplary and pioneering, in particular the ensemble of the Zürich University of Teacher Education by Max Dudler, which was the first completed section. Photographs, sketches and text trace the development of this largest section of the new Europaallee from the tender to its realization.
