  • Especially craggy example of Förderer’s approach to designing buildings as large sculptures. His work straddles 1960–1978. Mostly he created churches and schools before abandoning the profession. He went on record saying that this kind of architecture was easier to realize in Switzerland than in Germany.

  • Listed by Schweizer Heimatschutz as one of “Die schönsten Bauten 1960-75”. In use.
