Interview with Piet Eckert

With Ryuji Fujimura, the editor-in-chief of the Tokyo-based magazine, Piet Eckert talked about formal and informal urban development, the shift from urbanism to space planning in Switzerland, the importance of infrastructure and his personal learnings from the “Learning from Tokyo” symposium: Whereas Zürich could profit from the culture of density that Tokyo lives, Japan might learn from Switzerland when it comes to sustainability and energy efficiency in architecture and the building sector. 

“Learning from Tokyo” took place this spring at the Architekturforum Zürich, featuring Piet Eckert as one of the keynote speakers.
