Electric Spool, by Herzog & de Meuron

The Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron designed two service-buildings for the Swiss railway. Both building are clad with copper strips, that are locally twisted at the places where windows are located. The iconography is that of the electric spool - an appropriate one since the buildings houses primarily transformators.
