Discover Switzerland and Europe!

Archicultura collected data of 6'500 villages and towns in Switzerland and furhter places in the rest of Europe. As a result, Archicultura created different maps with a rough breakdown on the total harmony of these villages and towns. Rated were architectural character, so the existance of a traditional and further developed architecture, if new and old buildings match, the existance of non-typical and disturbing buildings, the "architectural chaos" and pituresque aspects. In Switerland, these results are presented in different maps for each Canton. 95% of all Swiss villages are collected.

Archicultura worked out a classification of these villages:
Green: traditional character, pituresque, harmonic;
Yellow: without traditional character but not disturbing;
Red: unfitting, disturbing, chaotic.

The interactive map above shows you different pictures of Archicultura on Panoramio and the results of the collection (in progress). If a place is not shown above, you can have a look at the old maps below.


In this archive, you can get the old maps of 2005. They will not get updated.
