What was once Europe’s largest yoghurt factory is now the campus of the Zurich University of the Arts. With the conversion of the former dairy factory, a small city within the city was created, integrating education, culture, and housing through series of ramps, halls, squares and cascading staircase systems combined to form a complex configuration of inner spaces.

Daria Martinoni is a non-professional photographer working and living in Zurich, Switzerland. As a Geographer, she uses photography to playfully (de)construct the built urban environment we live in in order to explore our perception of space (and reality). She experiments with long shutter speeds and several zoom settings in one exposure. With this approach, she aimes at questioning our making of the world through experience and knowledge.
