Werner Huber


Werner Huber (born 1964 in Zurich) studied architecture at the ETH Zurich from 1985 to 1991. From 1992 to 1994 he lived in Moscow, where he reported on the urban development of the city for Swiss and Dutch newspapers and magazines. After his return to Switzerland he was an assistant at the Department of Architecture of the ETH Zurich. He then worked in a local architecture practice and wrote articles for various publications. Since 2001, he is editor at “Hochparterre”, the renowned Swiss magazine for architecture and design, since June 2019 he is a Member of the Executive Board. Since his first visit in 1986, he is a regular visitor of Warsaw. He developed his knowledge of socialist realism and modernism as an important basis for the classification of Polish architecture in the political and social context. He often guides groups interested in architecture around the Polish capital. In 2005 he published a guide to the urban history of Warsaw: “Warsaw – phoenix from the ashes” and in 2015 an architectural city Guide “Warsaw”, both in German.
