To accompany the exhibition Access for All, S AM is launching its first bike tours, for upper-secondary level and tertiary institutions. On this bike tour, students travel along the Rhine, which constitutes the largest and most important public space for the city of Basel. This interactive tour leads from the plaza Theaterplatz, along the Rhine, to the bridge Dreirosenbrücke and to the Klybeck harbour area.

DISCOVERY TOURS for schools, kindergartens and day centres

During the exhibition Access for All (20th of March – 15th of August 2021), the S AM Swiss Museum of Architecture is launching a rich and cost-free education programme for schools at all levels, kindergartens and day centres. On one hand, we offer dialogue-based guided tours and workshops within the exhibition Access for All at the respective appropriate level. On the other hand, we now offer education formats outdoors as well. The education ranges from playful approaches through to explanations based on architectural theory.

dialogue-based guided tours and workshops for SCHOOLS, KINDERGARTENS AND day centres

What public spaces do we use? Which ones are important to us? In the exhibition Access for All, we look at these questions in reference to projects from the Brazilian metropolis São Paulo and visions for the city of Basel. A ramp specially created for the exhibition, architectural models, photographs and peep-boxes invite visitors to have spatial experiences and to make their own interventions.
