The Kunsthaus extension is evolving dynamically, and the time has come to reveal what is happening on Heimplatz with a display in the large exhibition hall. Planning has now reached the stage at which we can present large models and lots of fascinating details of the architecture as well as answering many questions: why the Kunsthaus is growing, why an extension designed by a world-famous architect was chosen – and, most of all, what the new building on Heimplatz will look like inside and out. – www.kunsthaus.ch
