bathhouse Augusta Raurica

baselOne the bigger archeological sites in Europe is in Basel, Switzerland. It took me about a day to walk around former Augusta Raurica, since there were so many places and things to see. Some where just shown, others interpreted, but always visual in public space. One of the more outspoken examples is the bathhouse where you simply see again what you don’t see anymore. A big print hides a construction site and at the same time displays in a simple, but effective way what the place was like. I found it inspiring because the best ideas don’t have to be complex, but also because it combines turns two problems into one solution. And I’ll bet my boots the budget was easier to rise as well.
