Löwenbräuareal Zurich - not for the faint hearted, scaredy cats or the like

LÖWENBRÄU AREAL ZURICH

Photographer: GoSee

The industrial building famed as the Löwenbräuareal unites various galleries and art institutions in one large generous space. And as if it were a competition to see which of them can be the most contemporary – the art is so modern in parts, that a trained eye, a great sense of humour and a great deal of imagination is required to follow the curators’ line of thought.

The space itself has been used in a convincing way. Restraint seems to have been the principle approach to design, so as to maintain the industrial character of the building and create the required environment for the presentation of artwork.

The glass front, which measures 60 metres wide by 6 metres high and is structured by a series of iron columns, is impressive to stay the least. The glass front, which faces northwards provides the spaces with an ideal source of natural light.

Perfect for our GoSee photo tour. Our favourite art? Definitely the apron from the ‘70s. Is it still contemporary after 40 years? And what will happen to it if it isn’t? Another apron? But then what are we going to do with all those inflatable dolls in 40 years time?
