Based in Zurich, the Barão-Hutter studio was founded by Ivo Barão (b. 1986), who studied at the Faculty of Architecture in Porto, and Peter Hutter (b. 1984), who graduated from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. Having gathered professional experience with Peter Zumthor, they founded Barão-Hutter in 2010. With a working process that includes multidisciplinary teams of artisans and artists, the firm’s short history already includes several stand-out projects. In 2012, they won the competition to convert a 19th-century military complex into the Oxer Theater in the Swiss city of Aarau. Together with the artist Rui Anahory, the duo also designed the Kiosk Mythenquai in Zurich. Amongst other types of projects they are working on the master plan for the museum quartier in the city of St. Gallen in Switzerland.
