"House to watch the sunset" by Not Vital

7553 Tarasp


After the artist Not Vital had already built a "House to watch the sunset" in Agadez, Niger, as well as in Amazonas, Brazil, the third Sunset House was inaugurated on 13 July 2018 at the foot of Tarasp Castle.

Anyone who looks closely at the castle opposite sees the flag of Niger and next to it the one blowing in the wind from Brazil.

The "House to watch the sunset" in Tarasp is 13 meters high. The ascent is done via three stairs and leads to a tower with four floors. The concept for this was developed in just 13 minutes.

The fenced artwork can be freely visited. For safety reasons, it is unfortunately not possible to climb the stairs and was only allowed for the inauguration.
