Contacts & Details
S AM Swiss Architecture Museum is the leading institution devoted to public exhibitions and outreach programs about contemporary architecture in Switzerland. It is a platform anchored in entire Switzerland, whose audience and influence are also international. S AM focuses on present and future issues concerning the field of architecture and related disciplines. Through coherent presentations, documentation and reflexion about architecture and its social relevance, the main goal of S AM is to support architecture as a leading topic of professional and public concern. In achieving this aim, the museum represents an independent position within the broad spectrum of Swiss building culture on the one hand and maintains an outlook exploring global changes and developments on the other hand. S AM’s aims also include establishing a broad and critical discussion about future design tasks, challenges and values in the cultural context of architecture at the beginning of the 21st century. The exhibitions are intended for both a professional as well as a broad public interested in architecture.
