The 10 best architecture projects of 2020.
A selection of architectures realized and published during 2020 by the historical magazine DOMUS : from the challenges of density to the experiments on the material, from the rediscovered public space to the construction as a tool for inclusion.
Also among the best projects of 2020 is the world’s largest chocolate museum, the “Lindt Home of Chocolate” in Kilchberg, Switzerland by Christ & Gantenbein.
The Lindt & Sprüngli headquarters is a layering of a series of buildings that have developed throughout history, enriched in 2020 with high quality contemporary architecture.
The Lindt Home of Chocolate by Christ & Gantenbein is a corporate museum open to the public and a research center, and is now the largest chocolate museum in the world.
Its brick facade and white core define a spatial and formal achievement that, in the words of Emanuel Christ, “bridges the substantial gap between a commercial environment and classical grandeur.”
Inside, the majestic staircase is made of white Carrara marble.
