ETH Zurich research building

Project overview

The new building for Medical Technology at the new Department of Health Sciences and Technology at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich is to be built on Gloriastrasse on the site of the former Laboratory of Hydraulics, Hydrology and Glaciology (VAW) building. It will be characterised by an innovative glass brick facade, and will offer particularly high flexibility of use.
