Unexpected Switzerland

Short break from Barcelona for the moment.

As some of you know, I am serving as a National Geographic Glimpse Correspondent for this spring. One of my assignments is to create a photo slideshow of Switzerland. For this, I am thinking of showing the side of Switzerland unknown to tourists. One good example is the graffiti art wall in Neuenhof, featured recently by Twissted Swisster. I’m also looking for modern architecture, palm trees, things (or people)that are not the usual mountain/cow /chalet in the snow/skier scenes of Switzerland.

I’d love any ideas you may have from wherever you live or know of in Switzerland that's on the other side of ordinary. If you are Swiss and do something unique and would be interested in having yourself photographed, please let me know as well. Thanks in advance. I'm looking forward to showing off a new side of Switzerland.

Hey! I came across a cultural center in Zürich called Rote Fabrik. Do you know it? It seems very un-Swiss to me, as the entire building is full of seemingly welcomed graffiti and houses a diverse bunch of businesses. It would be interesting to find out more about the history of the center and interview some of the people who run it.
