For the chair of construction at ETH Zurich, Dr. Hans-Peter Bärtschi conducted several studies about early steel constructions in England. This topic was later the theme of a number of publications on sheet and cast iron; furthermore, he published papers about the situation of the working class, especially in mines and industrial urban districts. The Docklands in Liverpool and London were treated in several exhibitions. From 1971 to 1999, ARIAS organised numerous study trips through Great Britain.
