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 fa├žade reproduces the inner structure of the building and lends the building an impression keenly suited to its purpose.
