AGS Atelier Gisel

This page only applies to students working at Atelier Gisel! (ETH AGS)

General information

The Atelier Gisel offers an excellent infrastructure for students of architecture outside the D-ARCH building HIL. The use of the AGS premises in the Hirslanden district becomes a privilege for a small group of students. Please note the terms of use of the AGS.

Basement: Institute GTA

Ground floor: Assistant Chair G. Caminada (assistant, workrooms for students)

First floor: Diplomatelier (workrooms for graduates)


The majority of printers/plotters are controlled directly (in contrast to the existing ETH-Print services), see instructions below.

Paper for plotters and printers must be organised independently in the group (Mr Laurenz Jaisli, Assistant Caminada can advise on this).

Toner and/or ink can be collected from the IT Services Group HIL C 38.3 (ISG Helpdesk) on advance order.



The AGS infrastructure includes workplaces for students and graduates. The D-ARCH also provides certain computer infrastructure and peripherals for all students and graduates. The IT Services Group ISG D-ARCH is responsible for this.
