Between Silberturm and primary school Grossacker, St.Gallen

Area

It sparkles, exuding a space-age atmosphere: Silberturm, the ‘silver tower’. Built between 1973 and 1977, it brought a new urban scale to St Fiden. The complex comprises a 12-storey tower and a spacious shopping centre at its base. There is something futuristic about it: an elliptical UFO taking off or transmitting into the ether, clad in aluminium panels and featuring rounded windows. This larger scale comes into play in a total of three public facilities that are situated in close proximity to each other: horizontally with the Grossacker primary school (from the late 1950s), vertically with the ‘techie’ silver tower, and somewhere in between with the Protestant parish centre and its béton brut church tower (from 1954).

The nine projections that comprise stadtprojektionen V offer an invitation to stroll through St Fiden at night. Silberturm is lit up by three projections, as is the Grossacker primary school, which stands out with its brick walls, its shed roofs, and the striking bond between its wings and the landscape. Three more projections extend into the surrounding residential neighbourhood, incorporating aspects such as a former butchery.
