  • Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, Gardens

From here you have a wonderful view of the Museum für Gestaltung and the higher wing of the Gewerbeschule adjoining it. Even back at the time when the building complex was under construction, the gardens in which you are standing were already an integral part of the plan. This way of including the exterior space is also typical of “Neues Bauen”. The garden was designed by the Zurich landscape architect Gustav Ammann. Ammann worked with many well-known Swiss architects, and liked to do so. For example, he collaborated with Max Frisch on the famous Letzigraben swimming pool, now called the Max Frisch pool. In 1939 Ammann was the chief garden designer for the Swiss National Exhibition, or Landi 39.
