Gneiss! Swiss stone in an architectural context
Gneiss is one of the most important natural stones and building materials in Switzerland. Based on selected architectural examples – such as Tessiner Rustici, Zurich's Enge railway station, Parliament Square in Bern or Therme Vals – the exhibition showcases numerous material patterns and surface treatments for the various types of Swiss gneiss still available today.
Exhibition opening: Thursday, 6 October, 18.00, auditorium HIL E 6
Talk by Jürg Conzett, Chur, on the topic of "Gneiss Constructions"
