Our poster-sized map takes a fresh look at 40 ground-breaking concrete legends in architecture and art in and around Basel from 1913 to the present day. Pioneering stars like Antoniuskirche and Goetheanum meet key brutalist icons of the 60s and 70s. Contemporary objects by Herzog & de Meuron and young architectural practices show how the spirit of béton brut lives on today. Masonry Hall – one of the world’s finest concrete origami, stars as a poster on the back.

Each object is featured with a picture. The legend lists key data – construction period, architects, location and nearest tram stop. An introduction in German and English adds additional insights. The map on the detachable cover provides easy navigation. With its bold visuals, flexible format and extra-thick paper, CARTE BRUTE BASEL is a hard-wearing travel companion with eye-catching qualities. Take it with you on your next city safari or use it as a poster at home or in the office.
