Les Frères Chapuisat: Une échappée belle

Tenner Chrüz – GPS 46.759987, 9.333018


For the past sixteen years, the Swiss artist collective Les Frères Chapuisat has been creating complex architectural wooden structures. The creation of Une échappée belle commenced with an arrangement of a Stammtisch [Ger. regular’s table]. With a 360° panorama, the woven wooden structure served not only as the artists’ accommodation during the entire construction process but since it´s completion now serves as a meeting point for visitors and the local community. Une échappée belle is complimented by a smaller structure located in the neighboring Schlüechtli.
