Housed in the Kunsthalle Basel building, the S AM Swiss Architecture Museum is a leading venue for contemporary architecture. The program seeks to bridge the gap between professional discourse and the wider public. With an average of four exhibitions each year, all geared toward interdisciplinarity and the intersection of history with the present, S AM appeals not only to architects, engineers, and planners, but to anyone with an interest in architecture. The exhibitions are supplemented by guided tours, lectures, panel discussions, workshops, publications, and opportunities for exchange and networking.
The city of Basel is a vibrant center for culture and architecture, with an abundance of outstanding classical, modernist, and contemporary structures. Its unique location on the border of Germany and France facilitates international connections and exchange.
