House Behaviorology in Switzerland in Geneva – Mid Review 1 – Wednesday 11.10.2022

We are pleased to announce the 1st Mid Review of our design studio House Behaviorology in Switzerland in Geneva HS22.


To find the character and essence of today’s house design in Geneva, we started with analyzing 33 existing single-family houses in and around the city. We researched and mapped how these basic units of housing relate to the users, to each other and to their surroundings. What kind of purposes do they fulfill and what kind of activities and behaviors do these houses enable? 

By understanding a building, a house not as an isolated object but as a node in a vast and far reaching network, or several networks, we grow conscious of the impact, which our design has, not only on the specific plot, but on the neighbors, the city, the environment, the society. Vice-versa, analyzing and understanding the networks, which have shaped existing buildings, helps us to better understand how and why the design of those buildings came to be.
