Basel is recognized as Switzerland’s architectural capital. Hardly any other region is home to so many internationally active architectural offices. In order to showcase the highly diverse potential of building culture, expertise and enthusiasm in the city and surrounding area, Architektur Dialoge has initiated a new biennial platform for architecture and urban development: the Architekturwoche Basel (AWB). The first edition was held from 9–15 May 2022.
The inaugural edition of the Architekturwoche Basel (9–15 May 2022) welcomed over 10.000 visitors from the region, Switzerland and abroad. The positive response to the opening evening of the Basel Pavillon was particularly pleasing: with around 400 visitors, the event exceeded its own expectations.
“The positive response shows that there has long been a need for this newly created platform.”
Chrissie Muhr, Artistic Director of Architekturwoche Basel 2022
