Lucerne Architecture : Schweizerische Architektur

Key Contemporary Developments in central Switzerland, Europe

Architecture in Lucerne Buildings

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Lucerne Building Developments, Switzerland. We aim to include Swiss projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed Lucerne buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across the city area. The focus is on contemporary Swiss buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

We have 1 page of Lucerne Architecture selections with links to many individual project pages.

Swiss Museum of Transport
The new entrance building forms a bridge-like link between the existing buildings on Lidostrasse (the IMAX, the Rail Transport Hall and the high-rise building). It contains on the ground floor the ticket office, shop area and both restaurants – one offers table service and opens towards the lake, the other is conceived as a self-service restaurant that stretches out like fingers into the arena. On the first floor are accommodated the exhibition areas for communications, the new entrance to the Planetarium and also the services area.
