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.

Initially an Urban Photographer driven by her background in Geography and her interest in our perception of space (and time), Daria Martinoni's conceptual photo series now address the impact of human behaviour and consumerism on the environment. Daria’s style is characterised by her ability to turn ordinary, often overlooked subjects into striking images that spark conversations about pertinent issues. She plays with the design elements of perspective, colour and repetition to create images characterised by a rich attention to detail, composition, and contextual information.
