Opening up ONA

The physical space of the Chair of Architecture & Urban Transformation, the Design in Dialogue Lab, is located inside the ONA building, a repurposed industrial building on the border of the neighborhoods of Seebach & Oerlikon in Zürich, Switzerland. The building is currently shared by a range of smaller companies and several institutes of ETH Zürich’s Department of Architecture.

As a versatile work and dialogue setting, it offers a variety of configurations that allow us to come together, test new ideas and practices and to reflect, share and relax. Combining theatrical elements with tools for co-production, the Lab offers the conditions for a variety of work sessions, informal gatherings, small presentations, collective cooking and public events.
