Something Fantastic is a design practice founded by three architects, Leonard Streich, Julian Schubert, and Elena Schütz. Since 2016 they direct the Master of Advanced Studies in Urban Design at the chair of Marc Angélil at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich) with a focus on informal and rapidly developing urban contexts. Other research and educational projects include collaborations with Harvard University and Yokohama GSA. They designed the German Pavilion at the 15th International Architecture Biennale in Venice (2016), have been nominated for the Iakov Chernikhov Prize, and won numerous awards for their design work. Forthcoming publications in 2017 include Desert Cities and The Index for Those Who Want to Reinvent Construction.
