A unique opportunity to get inside the mind of Bernhard Aebi from Aebi & Vincent Architects via their striking youth hostel project in Bern – supported by Swiss furniture manufacturer Horgenglarus.

For leading Swiss architect Bernhard Aebi, architecture is not an act, but a process. ‘I always say to my colleagues that, if we take our profession seriously, we architects are actually very fortunate to be able to design a building, not by designing it and then building it, but by developing it, by crafting and recrafting it.’

Bern-based office Aebi & Vincent's landmark restoration and new-build project for its hometown's popular Jugendherberge, or youth hostel, bears this out, as Architonic's deep-dive discovery of both the project in all its constructional detail, and of the creative, decision-making process of the architect's mind, reveals.
