Das Gemeindehaus kopiert das Engadiner Haus nicht, sondern interpretiert es neu.

Town Hall No. 7: Town Hall

Dorfstrasse 38, 7477 Filisur


Tubulent new building

Before the new town hall could be built in 1977, the previous building had to give way. The municipality cleared the old town hall before demolition. An action that went out of control. The villagers flocked with handcarts, trucks and tools and took with them everything that was not rivet- and nail-proof. "Dia are miar," they are said to have argued loudly about stairs and furniture. Even hand-holding had occurred.

Not only the demolition of the old, but also the new town hall caused turbulence in the village. Not everyone liked the mighty new building. 

In the audio Felix Schutz, mayor of Filisur (2008 - 2017), talks about village life and the reactions to the modern town hall.
