Zürich + The Northern Cities

Zürich + The Northern Cities Travel Guide

Le Corbusier's last building - a glass-and-steel structure that looks like a Mondrian painting in 3-D - has now been transformed into a museum. Completed after his death in 1965, it's now named after the patron who commissioned it. It houses Le Corbusier's sketches, lithographs, and writings.

This gallery, which has satellites in London and New York, represents everyone from sculptor Louise Bourgeois to Swiss video artist Pipilotti Rist.

Bischofberger was Jean-Michel Basquiat's European dealer, so it's no surprise to find an exhibition of the artist's collages and paintings.

Owner Ursula Weber sells beaded necklaces, gold-threaded scarves, embroidered pillows, and other treasures from northern Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.

Shop for ski gear (not to mention clothing from designers like Escada).
