Clearly went to the same university as the one who did my staircase. I'm reasonably flexible when it comes to architectural design, having a soft spot for Brutalism and all, but this is just "Je-m'en-foutisme".
FYI - I only liked this post to appear clever.

Well, there was a poll on the TA this morning, in which I answered (although I am absolutely passionate about about minimalist design and functional living since a couple of decades, and saw my answer that (can’t remember the exact formulation of the 3 choices) met with 55% that would never, ever want to live in a place like this. Expect that % has increased in the meantime (unfortunately cannot see the end-of-day results as I have already voted).

Also spoke with an architect (Swiss) good friend this morning, by the by, not expecting him to have looked at such press - or expecting him to go into a speech explaining the architectural aspects of this project.

But he astounded me by saying that “yes”, he also found it crazy ��.

Not even the architects daughter of the property in press liked it.

Sometimes, Switzerland appears a little bit difficult to grasp….
