The Weishaupt Forum opens following two years of construction. At a ceremony held in May, the company's new exhibition, training, and social centre is inaugurated in the presence of the New York architect, Richard Meier. Purist in style and precise down to the last detail, it gives the site in Schwendi a new look. One of the highlights of the celebrations, which are attended by hundreds of guests, is a concert given by the famous contemporary composer, Philipp Glass, a leading representative of so-called minimalist music. At the ceremony he plays his own work, “Opening”.
