There will be two themes for this tour Housing and Early Concrete buildings which will be mixed together, over the two days of the tour. The housing will cover garden city type schemes through a Weissenhof-type siedlung to later schemes. Early concrete buildings will include Karl Moserâ€™s famous Antoniuskirche. This study visit is being led by Prof Jacques Gubler, who some of you met at our Jean Tschumi event at the Royal Academy, and who is generally recognised as the leading architectural historian of Suisse romande (i.e. French-speaking Swiss) origin.
There will be a nominal charge to cover organisational costs, notably production of notes, but otherwise the visit is simply at cost, i.e. your own transport to & from Basel, accommodation, public transport within/around Basel (see below) and food. It is necessary to have your own travel insurance. No responsibility can be accepted for delay, inconvenience, loss or injury during the tour or visits or journey. Any insurance should be taken out individually.
If you want to take part in this study tour, please register with the Coordinator, as soon as possible as numbers will be limited.
