Bruno Weber One man’s fantasy sculpture park

Embed code

Bruno Weber (1931-2011) left behind a legacy of the largest sculpture park of any individual artist. swissinfo.ch took a look inside with his widow, Maria Anna Weber.

The future of the Bruno Weber park outside Dietikon, near Zurich, is now secure. It’s pegged to become a listed heritage site about ten years from now.

A new board has taken a close look at the park and created a concept which charts its development, redevelopment and expansion phases in three, seven and 21-year periods.

Parallel to the industrialisation of the Limmat valley, Weber dedicated half a century to creating a work of art that reflects the relationship between people, nature and habitat. As the rapid development of the Limmat valley took shape, the oasis took on an enchanting nature – 15,000 m2 of buildings, sculptures, woodland and water gardens. In 2004 it was adopted as a certified protected site.
