This building at 2-4 rue Saint-Laurent (in the Villereuse area) can appear out-of-date these days, but when it was designed by the famous Swiss architect Le Corbusier in 1931-32, it was really a very futuristic project. Everything is made with steel and glass. The metallic frame frees the interior walls from all supporting functions.
This 9-storey aluminium, glass and steel building is an extremely practical creation and fully deserves its place in the urban infrastructure due to its original volumetry in the shape of a wing. The building was designed to reflect the concerns of the WMO relating to the impact human activity has on the environment.
The postal bus station at Chur train station is one of the city’s most striking buildings. The imposing glass dome provides shelter for passengers and buses in all weathers and serves as a starting point for many interesting rides aboard the yellow buses.
