The original New7Wonders Headquarters
The Heidi Weber Museum in Zürich is the last building designed in the very heart of Europe by Le Corbusier, one of the most renowned architects of the 20th century. Located on the wooded shores of Lake Zürich, the museum synthesizes his genius and marks a radical change of his achievement of using concrete and stone so poetically. Le Corbusier framed his final masterpiece in steel and glass and thus created a signpost for the future. The artist made great use of prefabricated steel elements together with multi-coloured enamelled plates fitted to the central core, and above the complex he designed a ‘free-floating’ roof to keep the house protected from both the rain and the sun.
In its time as the New7Wonders Headquarters, the Museum hosted many historic campaign events: the official announcements of the New7Wonders of the World Finalists in 2006, the New7Wonders of Nature Finalists in 2009, the 2011 Declaration of the New7Wonders of Nature voting results and the New7Wonders Cities Finalists in 2013.
The Heidi Weber Museum was donated to the public domain in May 2014 and is being managed by the city of Zürich.

The New7Wonders Foundation remains based in Switzerland and is evaluating options for a future headquarters.
