06.10.2021New Kunsthaus Zürich opens

Following twelve years of planning and construction, the new extension to the Kunsthaus Zürich will open to the public on Saturday 9 October. Designed by David Chipperfield Architects Berlin, the new freestanding building extends the existing Kunsthaus Zürich to become the largest art museum in Switzerland. It faces the original institution across Heimplatz, defining an urban square to the south and a new art garden to the north which are connected by a large, publicly accessible central hall. The new Kunsthaus will display a collection of classic modernism, the Bührle collection, and contemporary art from 1960 onwards as well containing spaces for temporary exhibitions and events.
