Architekturwoche Basel 2022 Events
From 9–15 May 2022, a new platform for architecture and urban development will be held for the first time: the Architekturwoche Basel (AWB), which is to be repeated every two years in future. Initiated by the Architektur Dialoge Foundation and organized under artistic director Chrissie Muhr, the inaugural edition of AWB 2022 addresses the theme of “Reale Räume” (Real Spaces) – examining how globalization, digitalization, migration, climate change and the pandemic affect the urban spaces around us.

Golf Club Saint Apollinaire Michelbach-Le-Haut
Mulhouse-based DeA architectes found inspiration for their range of new builds on the Saint Apollinaire golf course in the traditional barns of the former priory. They also converted the existing building stock for the use of players and visitors. Even after the redevelopment as a golf course, the grounds remain open to the public.

Swiss Primary School Building
According to the architects the main objective of the building design is to “serve the demands of the educational demands an appropriate architectural condition”. The interior design offers a wide range of functionality and flexibility. The daylight is used in an optimal way. The wide plantation of the schoolyard creates a green area which provides a high standard to the exterior surroundings.

Basel Aquarium
Zoo Basel is embedded in the city and used as a park by residents and visitors. The redesigning of the green area Nachtigallenwäldeli and the construction of the new Ozeanium, an ocean aquarium, on the Heuwaage are bringing the zoo and the park area even closer to the city center, to form an attractive living environment and recreational area.
