Peter Märkli was born in 1953 in Zurich, where he later went on to study architecture at the ETH Zurich. His work has been influenced heavily by a trip he made to Saintonge in 1982, and more recently, by a tour he made of Palladio’s country villas. In 2000, alongside his own studio, he began to build up an office in Albisrieden. Since 2002 he has been Professor of Design at the ETH Zurich.
