Switzerland's park legacy of one man’s fantasy

Comments0 comments

The Bruno Weber park near Zurich is the legacy of the Swiss artist's fantasy that he dared to share with the world.

Bruno Weber (1931–2011) left behind a legacy of the largest sculpture park of any individual artist. News website swissinfo.ch took a look inside with his widow, Maria Anna Weber.

Bruno Weber's legacy in Switzerland

The future of the Bruno Weber park outside Dietikon, near Zurich, is now secure. It’s pegged to become a listed heritage site about ten years from now.

A new board has taken a close look at the park and created a concept which charts its development, redevelopment and expansion phases in three, seven and 21-year periods.

Parallel to the industrialisation of the Limmat valley, Weber dedicated half a century to creating a work of art that reflects the relationship between people, nature and habitat. As the rapid development of the Limmat valley took shape, the oasis took on an enchanting nature – 15,000 m2 of buildings, sculptures, woodland and water gardens. In 2004 it was adopted as a certified protected site.
