The «Salon Suisse»: «En marge de l’architecture: Encounters beyond the discipline»
This year’s «Salon Suisse» will present «En marge de l’architecture: Encounters beyond the discipline» by architectural historian Marcel Bächtiger, cultural theorist Tim Kammasch, and architect Stanislas Zimmermann with the support of local Salonnière Laura Tinti.
The events will tackle the importance of the disciplines bordering architecture, such as art, film, literature, urbanism, philosophy. Using the metaphor of a sailing expedition which stops in different islands (i.e. disciplines), the «Salon Suisse» hopes to open up the discourse surrounding the architecture of the 21st century.
