Carl FINGERHUTH Consultant for Urban Planning, Design and Architecture, Zurich

CV

Carl Fingerhuth's preoccupation has always been the town: as an archeologist in Egypt (1960-1961), with an office for town planning in Zürich (1964-1978), as the State architect in Basel (1979-1992), as a traveling expert in Europe, Asia, Africa and America (since 1992) and as a teacher in universities in Switzerland, France, Italy, Germany and the USA. He is a Honorary Professor at the Technical University of D-Darmstadt. His main interest is the quest for the 'Gestalt' of the town beyond the modern, recently documented in 'Learning from China - The Tao of the City'.
