On the border of Switzerland, the city of Basel forms part of the Switzerland, Germany, France triangle and meeting place for different cultures and history – as well as modern architecture and art today.
This first church in Switzerland built from concrete was designed by the architecture professor Karl Moser. It was built between 1925 and 1927. The floor plan of the church, which is built in precast concrete, is a rectangle with the impressive size of 60 x 22 meters and a height of 22 meters. The monumental stained glass windows make St. Antonius stand out as a pioneering church structure.
