The purpose of the Berni­na­ Pass main­ten­ance base is to keep Valposchiavo connected with the rest of Switzerland all year round, clearing the snow from the 2328m high Bernina pass. On top of the silo for gravel and salt, a camera obscura was installed. It was awarded the Beton21 architecture prize.
Design: Bearth & Deplazes, completed in 2019
