Ron Edelaar, Elli Mosayebi, and Christian Inderbitzin founded EMI Architekten in Zurich in 2005. The office has developed a particular focus on housing and urban design in Switzerland through numerous projects awarded via competitions. Parallel to their practice, research and teaching have been critical aspects of their endeavours, and Elli Mosayebi has been a Professor for Architecture and Design at ETH Zurich since 2018. To learn about their projects and approach to designing windows, we spoke with Mosayebi and Edelaar at their studio in Zurich.
