From the past to the present: There are a whole host of architectural jewels from the 20th and 21st century to discover on this walk through Lugano.
The Ticino architectural tradition has its roots before the year 1000. Maestri Comacini, Intelvesi and Campionesi were born in this region. This tradition was renewed over the centuries.
A guided walk through Lugano gives you the opportunity to discover some of the most interesting buildings built on the shores of Lake Lugano in the 20th and 21st century. From Mario Chiattone to Livio Vacchini, from Rino Tami to Mario Botta, to the local university (USI) campus, our tour will show Lugano in an entirely new light: you’ll be able to admire it from an architect's perspective.
The guided tour is run in collaboration with i2a (Istituto Internazionale di Architettura) and you will be accompanied by a local architect.
