The Paulus Akademie is a forum for religion, ethics, society and politics. The new building in Zurich West has a significant role as the connecting corner building of the perimeter block. It consists of a two-storey wing along the tram tracks and a six-storey corner building with an attic. The low-rise building features a hall that accommodates 200 people and various seminar rooms. The towering corner piece houses the offices. The strict, vertically organised façade reproduces the inner structure of the building and lends the building an impression keenly suited to its purpose.
