In Switzerland, over 500 kilograms of construction waste are produced every second through the demolition of buildings. The building industry is thus responsible for 84 percent of waste in the country.

Which buildings are demolished and how much resources are lost through this process? What motivates building owners to demolish? What roles do laws and standards play? And what does this mean for our environment and our future?
In this exhibition, the organization Countdown 2030 will investigate these questions.

Demolition Atlas Switzerland

In Switzerland, over 500kg are demolished per second. Where does this mass come from? What kind of buildings are being demolished? The Demolition Atlas of Switzerland aims to answer these questions.
Among other things, the entries in the atlas will form the basis for the exhibition  ‘Switzerland: A Demolition’.
