Smart Basel

The August issue of jet-setting hipster magazine Wallpaper* has the eponymous article about the town which I usually refer to as home. It's a really well researched and comprehensive portrait of the place (dropping all the right names where one has to have been, and they even recommend swimming in the Rhine!) - including its occasional dullness, but in a friendly way: Why is it that the concept of a "perfect" city immediately suggests that it is "perfectly dull", especially if the word "Swiss" is involved?
