Exhibition Opening | The Swiss Touch in Lanscape Architecture

When: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM TUESDAY, MAY 13

Where: At The Center   

Join us for the opening of The Swiss Touch in Lanscape Architecture

Landscape stands today at the center of the political, aesthetic and social discourse of our time. While nowadays everyone has a voice concerning landscape — journalists and politicians, architects and urban planners, sociologists etc. refer to it all the time — the most important figures working in the field of landscape, that is, the landscape architects and the garden designers, are still mostly unknown to the public.

The Swiss Touch in Landscape Architecture intends to fill this gap and provide an insight into the extreme richness and variety of Swiss landscape architecture. In the context of the exhibition, landscape architecture is not understood in a narrow and dogmatic way: besides landscape architects, the show also presents the relevant work of architects such as Bernard Tschumi or Herzog & de Meuron and that of engineers like Jürg Conzett.
