Ehrl Bielicky is a Zurich-based architecture practice, founded in 2022, focusing on cultural, historical, environmental, and spatial transformations that are shaping the discipline of architecture today and in the future. Working both for clients and on self-initiated projects, the practice concentrates on the contextual conditions of existing structures and new developments, as well as on innovative design solutions and processes informed by transdisciplinary collaborations and the experimental work with visual and multi-media outcomes and strategies. Ehrl Bielicky is working with a wide and multidisciplinary network of external partners.
Since 2014, Ellena Ehrl and Tibor Bielicky have collaborated on various projects bridging different scales and media in the fields of architecture, urbanism, design, publication, exhibition, and research. As part of that, they initiated Recording America, a research platform on American architecture, urbanism, and subculture. Between 2010 and 2019 they edited and published architecture magazine Planphase. They co-founded Superposition, a periodical investigating the human side of architecture in 2020.  Since 2022 they are editors at large of Capsule, an international review of Radical Design & Desire Theory. They are founding members of the collective design space Zurich International and both teach at the architecture department at ETH Zurich.

Ellena Ehrl, Dipl.-Ing. Arch. TUM  /SIA obtained her degree in architecture at Technical University Munich in 2014. After graduating, she co-edited the documentary film “Im Windschatten von Olympia“ as part of a research on the urban development of Munich in the 1960s and 70s. Between 2015 and 2017 she has worked for Graber Pulver Architekten in Zurich and between 2017 and 2021 for Christ & Gantenbein in Basel on competitions and project planning.
