Working Group ICOMOS AG Suisse: System & Serie

Although Switzerland had a comparatively low demand for buildings to be constructed rapidly on a large-​scale in the first decades after the end of the Second World War, pioneering systems and serial production methods were developed at an early stage and attracted international recognition and emulations.

The knowledge about the large-​scale series is often only available for the interrelated sets of housing developments and not for the system buildings scattered all over the country. The ICOMOS Suisse working group is addressing this issue and aims to support the preservation and recognition of the resulting buildings by systematically recording Swiss Systems and Series.

Initiated by André Barthel and Silke Langenberg. The working group is lead by Silke Langenberg since its foundation in 2015.

Supported by the Federal Office for Culture
