Contemporary architecture in Chur and its surroundings

 
 

Hardly any other region of Switzerland has such a variety of contemporary architecture such as Graubünden. In Chur essential structures have emerged in recent years that have shaped the city and are part of the current architectural discourse. This trend is eclipsed by a strong growth of the settlement area and corresponding enlargement of the required infrastructure.

Guided tour of architecture

The architectural tours focus on the current discourse and the central buildings of the Chur city center. Here, urban issues are discussed, visited individual buildings and made ​​references to historical viewpoints and issues. Architecture and urban planning are not abstract matters, but a practiced image we see ourselves and our culture. The architectural tours are conducted in cooperation with the HTW Chur.
