Museum Haus Konstruktiv is situated in the heart of Zurich, not far away from Paradeplatz, in one of the most impressive examples of New Objectivity and one of the most attractive buildings of industrial architecture. It is the leading museum in the Swiss cultural landscape that focuses on constructive, concrete and conceptual Art, as well as on revealing its continuing impact within contemporary art. One of the centerpieces of Museum Haus Konstruktiv's collection is Fritz Glarner's "Rockefeller Dining Room" (1963/64) revisited by Alfredo Häberli in 2016.

This museum was totally lost on me. There seemed to be a lot of space with very little of interest in it. That said, I liked the magnified dust particles. This has a high price tag for very little in return

Minimalism at its finest and an absolute must see if you are heading to Zurich. Loved the Marlow Moss exhibition - a real eye opener. Staff are amazingly friendly

this is not about constructivism. in December the museum had a display of basically third class artists, some neon light montage which were out of date. a great space totally wasted and at 16 francs entry fee an absolute rip-off. Do not go, particularly if...More

In contrast to some other modern art museums I have visited which tended to leave dark and depressing impressions, the Haus Konstruktiv has a more simple, abstract, and peaceful exhibit. I visited on a weekday afternoon, with probably only half-a-dozen other visitors in the 4-storey...More

the structure of the museum is nice but the exposition is difficult to follow. I really did not undestand the beauty of it.

i loved this, but I also love this type of art- it's minimalist, uncluttered, and plays around with space and shape. The exhibition "Room for Milk" was very thought provoking. Seemingly simple arrangements strongly affected how I felt in the room, and the balanced physics...More

Haus Konstruktiv seems to have a very interesting and pertinent collection and temporary exhibitions. I totally fell in love with Jochem Hendricks' show "Visionary Collection, Vol. 18" and also enjoyed most of the other works exhibited. Friendly personnel, free lockers and nice documentation center at...More
