The environment along the Rehberger-Weg with its mosaic of vineyards, fields, traditional orchards, woodland and a nature reserve reveals a great deal about flora and fauna, viticulture and agriculture in the region. The neighbouring urban areas sketch a brief history of architecture through the juxtaposition of buildings representative of an international architectural avant-garde with others deriving from a farming tradition, groups of listed buildings and twentieth-century urban development concepts.
Tobias Rehberger says about 24 Stops: “In an exemplary way, the project geographically combines two ‘neuralgic points’ of aesthetics: the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein and the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen. The artwork is a functional object, and the functional object an artwork. The wonderful landscape and the proximity to nature complete the experience.” The idea of a cross-border path was initiated within the framework of IBA Basel 2020. The Fondation Beyeler, the municipality of Riehen, Vitra and the town of Weil am Rhein are jointly responsible for the idea’s development and implementation.
