This modern poster was created for a 1986 exhibition held at the Museum of Design in Zurich, Switzerland. The exhibition centered around Atelier 5, a modernist architectural company founded in Bern, Switzerland.
Atelier 5 was created in 1955 by five young architects inspired by Le Courbusier's approach to the interrelation of form and function. Their work demonstrates the progress of modern architecture and brutalism during the 20th century, employing geometric forms to deconstruct the traditional facade. Some of their buildings have also been listed as Swiss Heritage Sites.
According to the website Architectuul.org, "their projects are always the result of a differentiated approach to the situation and the main functions of an installation. The focus is on man and his individual needs. For this reason, it is addressing the relationship between private interior and community exterior. At the same time, large dimensions are understood as the composition of parts of the scale. It goes without saying that it is not without its own interpretation and special weighting which, as always, remains the source of all creative activity. The aim is permanent buildings, the use of which is associated with joy for many years and whose qualities can always be rediscovered."
This poster is in good condition, with minor creases on the left margin, and ready to be framed.
