1955 Zurich, Switzerland

Peter Märkli studied architecture at the ETH Zurich. As a young man he initially grew interested in the architect Rudolf Olgiati, who would become his friend and mentor, and taught Märkli the basic elements of architecture. Later, while he was studying at the ETH, he got to know the sculptor Hans Josephsohn who taught him how to interogate sculpture and painting, and joining him on many museum visits and trips to Italy. In 1978 Märkli set up my own studio in Zurich: and Josephsohn and Märkli would alternate studio visits to discuss and criticize each other’s work. From 1982 his work was heavily influenced by a trip he made to Saintonge, France. His breakthrough building was La Congiunta, the 1992 ‘house for art’ in the canton of Ticino that houses the sculptural reliefs of Josephsohn. Since then projects have become larger and more complex, culminating in his Visitor Centre for Novartis Basel in 2006 and his internationally recognised offices, New Synthes, Solothurn of 2012. Since 2002 Märkli has been Professor of Design at the ETH in Zurich.
