Chur, Switzerland

Barozzi/Viega’s Bündner Kunstmuseum forms an elegant extension to the Grisons Museum of Fine Arts in Switzerland. Crisp in design and compact in size, the building is a stark and simple reinterpretation of its heritage neighbor.

InterContinental Hotel
Oikios Architekten
Davos, Switzerland

The characteristic oval shape and the almost scale-like facade - made of the twisting ribbons that form the balconies - makes the new InterContinental Hotel in Davos, Switzerland, designed by Munich-based architecture office Oikos Architekten, a striking landmark. Like a giant, shimmering pinecone amidst snow-clad pine trees of the Swiss Alps.

Vals Thermal Baths
Atelier Peter Zumthor
Vals, Switzerland

Praised as one of the best completed works by 2009 Pritzker Laureate Peter Zumthor, the Vals Thermal Baths might be one of the most iconic buildings in Swiss contemporary architecture. Already in 1998, just two years after its opening, it became a national monument. The building definitely rewards its visitors with the rare pleasure of experiencing a genuine example of timeless architecture.
