CARTE BRUTE ZÜRICH presents 40 ground-breaking concrete icons from all over the canton of Zurich. Classics, such as the National Museum’s Säulenhalle (1898) and Freudenberg school complex (1961), sit alongside contemporary objects by Herzog & de Meuron, Barozzi Veiga or the recently awarded Haus Alder. Discover real site-specific postwar art finds, such as the wall reliefs on Regina department store in Dietikon and Im Holzerhurd 46 residential tower. New objects combining bold design and climate-consciousness also feature prominently. Zurich’s most filigree concrete beauty – the elegantly curved Aula Rämibühl Auditorium (1971) stars as a poster on the back.
Each object is captured by an image. Key details for each object, an introduction in English and German and a map on the removable cover provide essential information. Folding out to A1, our map offers a fresh and very easy way to rediscover Zurich’s rich and diverse concrete heritage. With its visual appeal and flexible format, it works equally well for the living room and on the go.
Featuring images and an introduction by Karin Bürki / Head of HEARTBRUT. Design by LUGMA. Printed in Zurich on premium recycled paper.
