Contemporary architecture in Basel
20 April 2021
Besides renowned architects from Basel, numerous other Swiss and international architects, such as Mario Botta, Renzo Piano, and Frank O. Gehry, have left their mark on the cityscape and surroundings.
This worldwide respected diversity of remarkable buildings has been made possible by the appreciation of the public and a quality policy that focuses on competitive tendering.
The redevelopment of large urban areas is also a continuation of this architectural approach.
The focus is increasingly shifting from individual buildings to urban contexts.
Examples include the Roche company buildings, the Tinguely Museum, the Novartis Campus, the Messeplatz, the Beyeler Foundation, the Vitra Design Museum, and the Lonza building.
