Current discussion:

plimrn (2019/06/14 16:55:14): Me too
BabaCam (2019/06/11 12:47:31): Well this is all from the press, I wouldn't know the details first hand. Maybe she might have been too involved losing the reality?
plimrn (2019/06/10 22:46:59): It is good to hear all sides, but Zurich is talking typical lawyerly advice.
BabaCam (2019/06/10 10:27:02): Thanks a lot, Pat. Very interesting what you found about Heidi Weber. I did not know anything about her private life. Yes indeed we have to hide our faces for how long it took that women could finally vote :-)

Ms. Weber always had or has a problem with the City of Zürich. Not sure who is to blame. I found this:

[...] In 1960, I charged Le Corbusier with designing a building for a museum. My intention was, to place the museum with my art collection as a “synthesis of the arts” in the hands of the public. When I was looking for a suitable location, the city of Zurich ceded a property at the Zürichhorn under development rights for 50 years. Right from the beginning, the city of Zurich did not stick the deal agreed between us. I had to cushion financial difficulties, namely cost overrun due to the avant-garde architecture – its unique shape, construction, materials, etc. –, which posed a huge challenge for all stakeholders. The city of Zurich however did at no time contribute a single Swiss Franc to the construction, financing, or maintenance of the building. Additionally, I had to combat objections against the building, by people who wanted to avoid it being built. [...]

What ever went wrong in her eyes, I am really glad that these times are over and we can start to enjoy the building. Glad also that she had this vision. Without her it would not stand there.
