Haller, Fritz (1924– ). Swiss architect, he established his reputation with his system of building in steel, notably the Maxi system for large spans, as well as for his skeletal systems for furniture (USM). His fully developed system for medium-span structuring (Midi) was first used for the Swiss Railways Training Centre, Löwenberg, near Murten (1978–82). Other buildings include the USM, Münsingen (1960–4), Wagsenring School, Basel (1951, 1962), Canton School, Baden (1958–64), and Higher Technical Training Centre, Brugg-Windisch (1961–6).
