When it comes to construction trends in 2017, sustainability and high quality are more important than ever. This approach fits perfectly with Zurich-based firm ZANONI Architekten, who have preferred long-lasting quality over short-term attention for 35 years. In our interview, founder Tomaso Zanoni explains his recipe for success and what his Swiss heritage has to do with all this. “Our business is comprised of several different divisions. As such, we are just as much urban planners as we are architects or consultants,” says Tomaso Zanoni, who founded ZANONI Archiekten in 1982 after a successful career as a freelance architect and lecturer. Ever since then, he and his team have realised a wide range of challenging projects within architecture, consulting and urban planning.
