Wednesday Whim - Berg Oase

I'm not well-traveled so I'm one of the last people who would think of good destination spots. But, if someone showed me this unique Swiss-architect (Mario Botta) designed site known as Berg Oase, I would be on board to go!

The site is located in Arosa, Switzerland at the base of the mountains. Berg Oase is an interesting mix of Mother Nature and man-made structure. The light that comes from the interiors during the night gives a theatrical appearance contrasted with the daylight where the structure has a futuristic appeal. There are so many design elements within this place that catch my eye:  the glass bridge, the angles and the curves. Visually, there is so much to see that I can only imagine how it must feel to see this structure in person.

What do you think? Have any of you been here?

  3. I love the lighting at night, but it's still quite beautiful during the day too with the snow in the background.
