Earlier this month Architonic attended the biennial Swissbau in Basel, one of the largest construction and real estate tradeshows in Europe with more than 100,000 professional visitors. Here below are two Facebook photo galleries from the show with a selection of the best designs for you to enjoy. Of note, the event took place in the newly completed Messe Basel hall designed by architects Herzog & de Meuron, the impressive exterior of which can also be seen in the galleries.
Earlier this month (11 – 17 June) Design Miami/ Basel returned to Switzerland for its 7th edition with exhibitions from from Europe, the United States and Asia’s most relevant design galleries showcasing 20th and 21st century collectible design. Naturally, Architonic was there but in case you didn’t make it to Basel, here’s our vast image gallery with no less than 240 images from this inspiring show. Enjoy!
Join us on our photographic journey through the exhibition halls of this year’s edition of Swissbau which took place in Basel, Switzerland on 21 – 25. January. In the following five parts of Architonic’s ever-insightful photo tour, we have published no less than 500 images featuring some of the best manufacturers and the novelties they presented at this year’s edition of Swissbau.
BIG architects won an invited competition to renovate and extend an existing 1960’s concrete warehouse situated in a Basel industrial district which is being transformed into an alternative Arts District.
While the big money might traipse the halls of Art Basel each year, those who like to stay ahead of the game head for the Swiss city’s Liste art fair, which, running concurrently with its higher-profile counterpart, showcases the work of some of the best young artists around.
Architonic asked young, Zurich-based art historian and curator Larkin Erdmann (accompanied by camera man Timothy Standring) to report from the latest edition of Liste (now in its 16th year), inviting him to make a personal selection of the most compelling work on show. The resulting film features three galleries, whose exhibits all form a physical or conceptual dialogue in some way or other with architecture or design. Well, we are Architonic after all. (more…)
