Key Architectural Studios in Switzerland – Design Studios

post updated 16 February 2024

Swiss Architect – Architect Listings

This page contains a selection of major Swiss architects, with links to individual practice pages. We’ve selected what we feel are the key Swiss Architects, but additions are always welcome. The focus is on contemporary architects in Switzerland but information on traditional architecture studios is also welcome.

The most celebrated architect from the past is Le Corbusier, more often associated with France but born in Switzerland. Currently the most notable architecture practices are Herzog & de Meuron, Peter Zumthor and Santiago Calatrava Architects (Spanish).
