The presentation of the ritual concept.

Industry meets university research. The goal of the partnership initiated by Dornbracht: the development of a discourse on ritual architecture in the international architecture scene. Dornbracht specified the overarching subject of "ritual architecture", but this had no influence on the content of the process and results. A team of eight students from the ETH in Zurich dedicated themselves in three phases to the question for an entire semester. A final public critique by faculty and guest critics marked the completion of the Research Unit. The final critiques by the different faculty members traditionally represent the apex of every academic year at the ETH in Zurich. Birkhäuser publishers has released documentation of the project.
