Hochparterre – Architecture – Walk in the city overlooking Typo

Looking at the letters of the houses.

The inscription of architecture tells stories about buildings and the evolution of preferences. Agnès Laube and Michael Widrig teach them during their typo walk.

Toni area, gears Prime Tower and Maag, Design Museum, Friday or St. Jacob: Not only the buildings, but also the words, logos and signs that identify them, help the urban population to orient themselves. And these labels tell stories. There was a factory before? Where are the gears? What do these clams mean? Agnès Laube and Michael Widrig drive through the city of Zurich in their typographic walk and tell these stories. His typo walk, which takes place again at the end of October, was developed during his long-standing engagement with the "typo style". This is part of the design walks that Hochparterre offers.
