Buildings for emergency services have evolved into an independent and fascinating architectural typology in the past two decades. Since the opening of the spectacular fire station for the Vitra factory by Zaha Hadid, police stations, fire departments and rescue services increasingly consist of architecturally amazing buildings. These are always an attractive challenge – when functional demands and high security measures are brought in sync with stylish modern design, the results reflect the highest levels of architectural skills.

All three building types share the fact that they act as starting points for quick motorized dispatches. The featured buildings sometimes combine several institutions that are creatively situated under a single roof. The selected examples present the wonderful diversity of contemporary “emergency architecture”. The range extends from the rural two-bay fire station via the metropolitan police headquarters to the helicopter rescue center.

In addition to professional competence and familia...

  • FACADE GREENERY
    VAN UFFELEN, CHRIS
    The greening of faades with plants gives a piece of nature back to the city. But a green faade is much more than a charming view: Thanks to its insulating effect, it evens out extreme swings in temperature, protects against UV radiation and improves sound insulation. In that regard one does not have to always rely on the usual ivy. Other evergreen or fruit bearing plants and ev...
