On Monday afternoon I received a message from my friend Sven Amiet asking whether I'd be going to Swissbau 2024. I has some sense it was happening this year (it happens every other one), but I hadn't realised it was this week already.
It’s always impressive to arrive at Basel’s Messeplatz by tram. The last time I’d been here was for Swissbau 2020 (I skipped the one held 2 years ago).
It’s a trade show, after all, but the odd plant pot did help soften the atmosphere.
I’m a sucker for a DeLorean, like most people my age (I suspect).
I had no idea what it was doing on the show floor, mind.
