The idea behind Haus was first implemented by Peter Fischli and David Weiss as part of the Skulptur Projekte Münster in 1987. As can be ascertained from the description provided by the artists upon announcing their participation in that exhibition, Haus was intended as a 1:15 scale representation of a four-storey commercial building in the modern international style, which was to atmospherically fit into Münster’s cityscape near the railway station, between the cinema and the sausage stand. The artwork, which is dedicated to reflecting the relationship between everyday life and architecture, was recreated in 2016 on the basis of the original plans from 1987 for the retrospective at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. As of May 2018, Haus has been permanently installed in front of the cycle-racing track Offenen Rennbahn in Zürich-Oerlikon

Peter Fischli and David Weiss, often shortened to Fischli/Weiss, were an artist duo collaborated from 1979 until Weiss’s death in 2012. They were among the most renowned contemporary artists of Switzerland. Their best-known work is the film Der Lauf der Dinge (The Way Things Go) 1987, described by the Guardian as being ‘post-apocalyptic’, as it concerned chain reactions and the ways in which objects flew, crashed and exploded across the studio in which it was shot. Fischli lives and works in Zürich; Weiss died in 2012.
