Neubau Kunsthaus….built on the nice blue and white tent pitch

OK so the new Art Museum looks impressive but what was it built on? I just remember the blue and white tents, which was strange to have in the middle of the city, weren’t they connected to a Jewish heritage site which made major complaints about the new structure?

It’s been a while that I worked in Zurich which used to be near the Dolder so I suppose I’ll see this building instead when I’m soon back, shame really as I liked the old structures but that’s progress I suppose.

Is there also historically any connection to Zeltstrasse (Zelt=tent)?

You can see some of the old structures on Street View, which dates to before the works:

I believe that during excavations in that area, they had found gravestones from jewish graves. I was on a tour of the area and the tour guide said that there was no archeological evidence that a jewish cemetery had been located on that site, but rather it was the site of a former zürich city stone wall and the archeologists speculated that the tombstones had been previously removed from an older jewish cemetery and used to build the wall.

If you translate this article into English, you'll see that no evidence of a former jewish cemetery was found on the site.

Not that the new wing of the art museum is without controversy. It will house the bührle-collection. This industrialist bührle is accused of both profiting through trade with nazi germany as well as buying art that jewish victims of nazi germany were forced to sell.

The Zeltweg (originally ZeltersWeg, then Im Zeltweg, today ZeltWeg) got its name from the old (extinct) Zelter family, they owned the area many centuries ago. Today's KreuzBühl was called ZeltersBühl in the past (-bühl [also -büel, -büchel, etc] is old German for hill, it's a not-so-rare component of location names to this day).

We miss the very large and beautiful tree that had grown through the old fence....

Re: Neubau Kunsthaus….built on the nice blue and white tent pitch

There is a exhibition from 27.10.2021 to 16.01.2022 at Haus zum Recht, Neumarkt 4, 8001 Zürich that shows some of the findings. Since the exhibition opens today I just got the info, I haven't been there yet.

Given this article, I think I’m not going to visit any time soon!

The people interested in this thread may also be interested in this digitally enhanced film showing Zürich city scenes from more than a century ago.

Any suggestions where the long pan at around 7mins is shot from, the Urania SternWarte/observatory perhaps?

It's amazing how little has changed. All the streets depicted are instantly recognisable and even the paddle steamer at the end, Stadt Rapperswil is still in service.
