The architecture of the massive, modern terminal of the Saleve téléphérique, seen from a dramatic low angle. Located near Geneva, today, Saleve is considered a hiking and paragliding mecca. For this poster, despite boasting one "of the most beautiful panoramas in the world," Reb focused on the impressive technological construction of the cable car rather than the natural beauty of the surrounding Alps.
