Bright and early, yesterday morning, I hopped on a train (well, a couple of trains) to get across to Basel for this year’s Swissbau, the bienniel construction-related trade show held in Switzerland, and apparently one of the largest in Europe.
There was quite a bit going on at Swissbau, even outside the exhibition hall. At one point I saw some people performing while suspended from a building. And no, that’s not how people typically clean windows in Switzerland. 😉
The centre itself has a very cool feature: a whole coated in huge fish-like scales…
… that extends all the way through the building.
Inside the event is pretty huge, with upwards of 900 exhibitors.
There were a lot of more traditional construction-centric vendors, showing off new building materials and ceramics.
