dieterdietz.org is a platform based in Lausanne and Zurich that engages in public space, architecture, media and urban design. The office structure is built around teams that are specifically formed according to the nature of each specific project. The platform is never hierarchized around people, but revolves around projects and collaborators. Ultimately, partners are always co-authors. Architecture is conceived as a discipline with accentuated responsibility towards society and the environment: projects are always developed in open and holistic processes. This challenge is lived and shared with partners and clients as engaged members of contemporary societies. The firm works in an open research environment that ensures the fertilization of ideas across disciplines, projects and collaborators. Projects at any scale benefit from the know-how of a professional architectural practice and its proximity to the research and teaching environment at EPFL.
