Postplatz, 7000 Chur

Description

The architecture of modern banks is usually clear-cut and cool, and thus often detached from its surroundings. However, this is certainly not the case with the head office of the Graubünden Cantonal Bank; erected between 1909 and 1911, the building by architects Otto Schäfer and Martin Risch is a veritable icon of the “Bündner Heimatstil” movement. Its close ties with Graubünden are in evidence right down to the smallest detail; wherever you look there are motifs from local folklore. In the main hall is a wall painting by the Chur artist, Christian Conradin, depicting Graubünden’s economy.
