The void and limits have always been central themes in Peter Märkli’s teaching as professor for architecture and construction at ETH Zurich. The design tasks challenge us to formulate an idea of life that is reflected in the structural structures. The articulation of void, of exterior spaces, plays just as important a role as the expression of the façade, the design of the boundary between exterior and interior. With this publication and an exhibition, the Department of Architecture bid farewell to Peter Märkli. A selection of around 110 student projects, documents on teaching events and a discussion illustrate Märkli’s concerns and attitude.
