Swiss Architect


ETH, Zurich, Switzerland

Peter lives and works in Zurich.

While studying architecture at the ETH Zurich he met the sculptor Hans Josephsohn architect Rudolf Olgiati, whose Plastiken adorn many of his later works.

In 1978, MacKinnon founded his own Office in Zurich. The architect is best known among other things through the design of the La Congiunta Museum in Giornico for Joseph son. Märkli often sculptural broken realized several residential buildings within Switzerland in his characteristic style, or have formed, but actually strict structure connects with his typical earthy color and material aesthetics.
