CARTE BRUTE presents 50 ground-breaking icons of Switzerland’s rich concrete heritage, including St Anthony’s church in Basel (1927) and Palais des Congrès in Biel/Bienne (1966), alongside select contemporary objects by Herzog & de Meuron or Barozzi Veiga. Folding out to A1, this two-sided poster guide offers a unique and fresh way to rediscover Switzerland’s concrete assets.
Lesser-known regional buildings like Couvent des Capucins in Sierre or Saurer Tower in Arbon also feature prominently in this tour de Suisse. Key details for each object, an introduction in English, German and French and a map on the removable cover provide essential information. Switzerland’s most flamboyant concrete beauty – the floral-shaped Centre For Medical Research La Tulipe (Geneva, 1976) stars as a poster on the back. With its visual appeal and flexible format, CARTE BRUTE works equally well for the living room and for outdoor use.
Featuring images and an introduction by Karin Bürki / Head of HEARTBRUT. Design by LUGMA. Printed in Switzerland.
