Construction of the pavilion of the Swiss Army (Wehrhafte Schweiz), designed by Carl Fingerhuth, at the Swiss National Exhibition in 1964 in Lausanne. Photo from the Schweizerische Polierzeitung (Issue 4/64), a Swiss Construction Foremen Magazine.

The building was a symbol of defence, a physical representation of their military combining modernism and the threat of the Cold War.
