Monolith – Expo.02 Morat


Monolith Interiors - Expo.02 Morat

The Monolith interior was quite unexpected, with its tectonic structure that included escalators and three main levels.

The projections on a circular screen of contemporary Swiss life on the first level…

…and the modern landscape of Morat visible on the second level through windows invisible from the outside

…introduced Louis Braun’s circular panorama of the 1476 battle of Morat, on the third level, painted at the end of the 19th century and restored for the occasion.
