Die Schweiz: Ein Abriss

An Exhibition by Countdown 2030 and S AM Swiss Architecture Museum

In Switzerland, over 500 kilograms of construction waste are produced every second through the demolition of buildings. The building industry is thus responsible for 84 percent of waste in the country.
Which buildings are demolished and how much resources are lost through this process? What motivates building owners to demolish? What roles do laws and standards play? And what does this mean for our environment and our future?
In this exhibition, the organization Countdown 2030 will investigate these questions.

Demolition Atlas Switzerland

In Switzerland, over 500kg are demolished per second. Where does this mass come from? What kind of buildings are being demolished? The Demolition Atlas of Switzerland aims to answer these questions.
Among other things, the entries in the atlas will form the basis for the exhibition  ‘Switzerland: A Demolition’.

New Architecture in Japan

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.
