These elements of the wall offer thermal insulation and daylight. (source: Caroline Dione, Logique de la structure, 2007) at Lausanne, Switzerland
Messe Basel | @herzogdemeuron | 2010-2013
2018 has been an amazing year, and I can’t wait for 2019! (Actually I can, I need more time to prepare for my exams 😂) Anyways, I’ve never liked new years resolutions, if you want to change something, do it right now- but if there’s one for 2019.. be happy?
Wish you a wonderful 2019!💫 at Basel, Switzerland
Top of the Jet d’eau in Geneva
This version was installed in 1951, and 500 litres of water per second are jetted to an altitude of 140m.
Its history dates back to 1886, when a smaller version, which could reach a height of 30m, was used as a safety valve for the hydraulic power network. Since people liked it, they constructed a new one as a tourist attraction in 1891, although at a slightly different location, and this one could already reach a height of 90m. at Geneva, Switzerland

Shigeru Ban’s Tamedia in Zurich.
Although Shigeru Ban did not choose paper for this one, sustainability was definitely not an afterthought. The timber frame construction does not need any steel reinforcements and supports the structure beautifully.
Thanks to @openhouse.zuerich for the unique opportunity. at Zürich, Switzerland
