Zurich, mirror in the moment present

 

Column of containers in Zurich - © Norbert Pousseur

A high pile of old containers and a smooth and anonymous facade:
A little a symbol of Zurich, dynamic and modern city
In the often impersonal decorations,
but which leans on the base of traditions of any ages.

Zurich a running city.

Here are some highlights of two days for a walk in Zurich, once in 2012, and the other one in this year of 2016.
I propose you here only views trying to translate the relation of Zurich with the modernity.
Indeed this city is one of more dynamic of Switzerland at the same time by its industries and by its relation in the art. As many European cities, it is full of traces of a history which remains very present through its monuments, while showing a very modern face by its architecture which goes alongside with a young and dynamic spirit.

Glass facade in Zurich - © Norbert Pousseur

Glass facade as we see it in all the cities which develop,
but small intriguing, rather Zurich detail :
a branch of ivy which we let climb on the boom of work in progress.

Road under construction in Zurich - © Norbert Pousseur

A walking towards a future which does not stop it being built,
would it be as well that it would be necessary to define Zurich ?
