Buildings of Industrial trade school and College of art and design in Basel present the finest example of Swiss modernism.

Designed in 1961 by Hermann Baur, the school is formed by different buildings grouped around the central courtyard with the sculpture by Jean Arp in the center. The most striking part of the structure includes Maurer hall with geometrically constructed concrete shell creating two side walls and roof. Back and front walls are made out of floor to ceiling glass panels.
