Part of the Zurich University of the Arts, Museum für Gestaltung Zürich includes whatever is effective as “design”. Its main thematic areas are design, visual communication and architecture. In its archives the museum preserves objects of international importance: the Design Collection, the Graphics Collection, the Applied Art Collection and the Poster Collection are rich in milestones of technical and aesthetic development since the start of industrialisation.
