Herewith pictures from a documentation-oriented walk through Appenzell village.
Gallery: July 1 — Appenzell 1
A quirky, rather whimsical modernist apartment house.
The town church. The apse is off-axis from the nave and I forget why.
Side of the church along the main street, plus a heavy-duty gallery.
Landeskanzlei: the cantonal government headquarters, I guess?
Town hall, maybe; it is completely open on the street level to a courtyard beyond.
This fountain is totally cool because the ball rotates, buoyed by a current of water underneath, while water flows over it as well.
Here's a nice example of local symmetries.
A curious tower'd house.
A most excellent door.
Metallic reinterpretation of the paneling tradition.
This is the reddest building in the world.
This house is a historic landmark that I forget the details of.
Row of houses.
Another Alpina, this one a bit worn.
A convent (methinks) on the edge of the village.
Nice compound bracing.
