The tiered structure of the multi-purpose events centre creates an architectural link between the elevated heart of the old town and the pedestrian zone lower down near the station. The purist new building, with its generous areas of open space, blends in seamlessly with the town’s highly traditional architecture.

The extension to the schoolhouses is located on a site facing the main building and the great hall of the Rychenberg cantonal school. This location presents a challenge both in terms of topography and of thelisted status of the original buildings. The elongated new building, consisting of a cube on a pedestal, combines with the existing architectural ensemble to create a landmark that is modern yet unobtrusive.

This mini-museum must surely be the only transportable exhibition space of its kind in the world: a special container used for artistic and sociocultural projects in all sorts of locations. The "Friends of Kunsthaus Zug" foundation, which commissioned this travelling annex to their museum, wanted "an ambassador of the Kunsthaus to bring contemporary art to the audience".

Architects: Christian Heuchel, Tilmann Klein

The international business school and college goes back to an initiative launched by former US ambassador Ronald S. Lauder and Michael Häupl, Mayor of Vienna. With a new pavilion and redesign – in line with generally accepted conservation practice – of a partially baroque palace complex, the architects created a generously proportioned, elegant campus.
