Swiss architecture protégé Simon Kretz is an urbanist and researcher who has a practice which combines work at every scale. His experience embraces the old and the new, conservation and planning for the future of both the rural and urban
environments. His goal is to realize challenging projects – and furthermore to interrelate practical work, research and theory on small-and large-scale projects. “I am convinced that David Chipperfield – as a very experienced mentor
– will help me to further understand this wide network of reciprocal relations,” he says.
