Museum Tinguely of Art, Basel Switzerland

Mario Botta designed the Museum Tinguely in Basel Switzerland, completed in 1996.

This gallery of modern art has kinetic sculptures on permanent display, and up to twenty machine-sculptures in the main hall. The hefty brick exterior is pressed up against the busy street. The circular tower and rectangular form abstract the historical church architecture from nearby, a post-modernist approach typical of Botta. Large walls of glazing open up to Solitude Park along the Rhine river. This establishes a transition from city to natural park in the building. Post-modernist decorations of curved roof trusses along this back facade help transition from the park into the man-made city. Botta used the same approach with his Leeum Samsung Museum in Korea.
