So that also means that around a third of Switzerland doesn't actually exist.

Can't resist any longer...

Is a door still a door when it's ajar?

Quote:
If the name of the architect would be Dali or Warhol, i'm certain you can stil call it a house and sell it for huge numbers.
More like Mies van der Rohe and is FarnsNotWorth House or the Crown Not Hall.

Also Le Corbusier, one of his first designs, the Pas de Maison Dom-Ino, has litarally no walls, whereas the very last building the Heidi Weber Nicht-ein-Haus -
Centre Le Corbusier at Zürich Horn is just a roof (If a roof is permitted to be made of steel). In between Le Corbusier desinged and built real houses and churches made of massive concrete.
