EXH Design: Swiss Quality, Chinese Speed
Eduard Kögel (Ed.)
The Chinese-Swiss architecture firm EXH Design excels in strategically optimized, site-specific solutions that find authentic and contemporary forms of expression. Founded in Shanghai in 2006 by Zhang Xi and Erich Diserens, the firm is knowledgeable about the challenges facing architects in China, owing to the rapid economic development. The approach of EXH Design is based on creative interaction with the client and combines technical refinement with elements of local culture. The architects work in the areas of urban planning, landscape planning, architecture and interior design in their office in Shanghai and since 2016 also in Zurich. This monograph presents a selection of the buildings and designs in Europe, Japan, Singapore and China, including the Wang Xiao Hui Art Museum in Suzhou and House Bellmund at Lake Biel. It illustrates the accomplished fusion of eastern and western qualities.
