On-site Projects John Armlder – Crystal Column
John Armleder – Crystal Column
Geneva-based conceptual artist John M. Armleder's project ‘Crystal Column’ beat three other contenders (Ingeborg Lüscher, Not Vital, and Beat Zoderer) for the client area at Lugano's Piazza della Riforma in 2005. The project selected by a jury of experts was realized in the winter of 2008/2009 under the technical supervision of Urs Burger. John M. Armleder's glass sculpture in the atrium is combined with the works of other Swiss artists who tackle the theme of Armleder's ‘Crystal Column’ – solitary lights, reflections, and refractions – in the 16 client meeting rooms located on the first and second floors.
