Protective housing for the remains of the foundations of three Roman Buildings (which one of those only a corner is visible). This protective casing for the archaeological finds was conceived as a kind of abstract reconstruction of the Roman volumes: a lightweight framework for walls made of timer lamella which admit light and air exactly follows the Roman outer walls, thus producing a package-like effect which give a visible form to location of the Roman buildings in today's city landscape.

You can borrow the key of the building at the tourist information of Chur, which is on -1 floor of Chur railway station. The building is very nice, especially there is only me inside. Feel and enjoy it. ^ ^

There are two large windows at street level, one for each of the two large spaces, through which you can view the inside. Beside each window is an electrical switch that turns on the interior lights, which are especially effective during night viewing.
