35 Years of S AM

Vernissage: 14 October 2019, 7 PM
Auction: 26 October 2019, 11 AM

The S AM Swiss Architecture Museum is celebrating its 35thbirthday this year. This retrospective traces the development of the museum, bringing together publications, posters by Claudiabasel and artefacts from the over 170 exhibitions put on by the institution to date.
The archival materials will be complemented by a collection of architectural drawings, models and other ephemera gifted to the museum by its members and supporters for this occasion. These “birthday gifts” will be handed over by the donors at the opening and will be integrated into the retrospective in the form of a wunderkammer. At the end of the exhibition, the objects will be sold in an auction benefitting the museum.

Admission: free
The vernissage and auction are open to the public.

This group show shines a light on young, lesser known architectural positions in Japan. In reaction to urgent problems of the present – climate crisis, social change, neoliberalism – these architects are exploring new ways of designing and working that also redefine the very role of the architect.
