The Kindergarten House Wiedikon was one of the first pavilions in Switzerland to be built between 1928 and 1932 by Hans Hofmann and Adolf Kellermüller. This publication records the history of the origin of this pioneering work of modernism and is at the same time a report of an exemplary restoration carried out with care and scientific meticulousness.
