Our poster map takes a fresh look at 40 ground-breaking concrete icons in and around Basel. Pioneering stars like Antoniuskirche and Goetheanum meet raw concrete legends of the 60s and 70s as well as site-specific art. Take a trip down psychedelic Panton-Tunnel, visit the monumental St. Chrischona TV tower or explore the Uluru / Ayers Rock of Muttenz. A stopover at Herzog & de Meuron’s Helsinki Dreispitz and low-energy Erlenmatt development shows how béton brut is done today. Masonry Hall – one of the world’s finest concrete origami, stars as a poster on the back.
Each object is featured with an image. Find key data – construction period, architects, location and closest tram station in the legend. The map on the removable cover makes navigation easy. With its bold visuals, flexible format and thick paper CARTE BRUTE BASEL makes a good looking and tough going companion whatever your destination. Take it along on a walk or use it as a poster in the office or at home.
Featuring images and an introduction by Karin Bürki / Head of HEARTBRUT. Design by LUGMA. Printed in Switzerland on extra thick and robust FSC-certified paper.
