Set Current Location
The Schweizerisches Architekturmuseum, established in 1984, is small but influential. The privately run museum has 400 square meters (4305 square feet) of exhibition space on four floors. The building itself is one of the few examples of modern 1950s architecture in Basel. There are three exhibition areas: Swiss Modern Architecture (e.g. Le Corbusier), Contemporary International Architecture (Gehry), and international shows, which highlight the links between art and architecture. The DomusHaus bookshop on the ground floor has a wide range of design and architecture books.
