During ART Basel, the Swiss bathroom specialist Laufen held a concurrent symposium at its corporate headquarters in Laufen/Switzerland. In the presence of some 120 participating architects, Tim Kammasch, Kurt W. Forster and the Swiss architects Gabrielle Hächler and Andreas Fuhrimann debated the concealed qualities of architecture in a lively panel discussion entitled: ‘Hidden Truths of Architecture.’ Pro Helvetia and Laufen invited prominent personalities: Tim Kammasch, Professor of Architectural Theory, hosted the panel discussion and debated with the famous art historian Kurt W. Forster, Director and Professor Emeritus at the Yale School of Architecture, as well as the Swiss architects Gabrielle Hächler and Andreas Fuhrimann of AFGH Architekten. The architects were also invited to take a look at the multi-faceted new interpretation of the SaphirKeramik project The New Classic by Marcel Wanders in an exclusive preview. The event was rounded off with the Smart Mobile Disco designed by Konstantin Grcic.
