La Gruyère en descente. 

Peas­ants car­ry­ing large cheeses descend­ing down an Alpine path’. The same image applies to the new chan­cellery, where count­less peas­ants bear the roof over a Gar­den of Even.

Babl Alger 15B


Danc­ing swiss crosses.

The build­ing struc­ture is cre­at­ed by a dense ring of danc­ing columns upon which the roof is placed, evok­ing the clas­sic image of a cary­atid in a gym­nas­tic effort.

The X‑shaped columns are 26 Swiss cross­es (as the num­ber of dif­fer­ent can­tons in Switzer­land) togeth­er form­ing a com­plex struc­ture recall­ing fil­i­gree abstract motifs of Ara­bic art. Made of gran­ules of mar­ble and white cement, the arma­ture is rein­forced in the diag­o­nals to secure the build­ing of hor­i­zon­tal forces dur­ing inten­sive earth­quake expo­sure cur­rent in Alger.
