From May 20 to June 18, S AM abolishes its entrance fee and provides a non-commercial space to the people of Basel to work, play, read, eat, rest and more.

In reaction to the increasing commodification of urban space today, two emerging architecture practices Kosmos Architects (Moscow/Basel) and Plan Común (Santiago de Chile) explore potential collective spaces in Basel. Surveys and projects, developed in collaboration with local architects, are complemented by interviews with actors of the built environment.

The more heterogeneous societies become, the more important it is for cities to provide open spaces where we can experience ourselves as part of a community. In the original sense of the “Museion” of Ancient Greece, S AM Swiss Architecture Museum is transformed into a home for public life.

Become part of S AM's public realm and enter your activity in the museum in our online calendar. For more information:
