Novartis Campus at Basel will be an international significant place of knowledge, innovation and encounters. Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani's master plan provides for individual buildings to be designed and realized by invited architects. Roger Diener, Helmut Federle and Gerold Wiederin designed and realized the first building, the Forum 3.
Immensely large coloured glass panels dance almost weightlessly in several layers around the building, making it move, gleam and shimmer, responding to the light at particular times of day and in different weather conditions. Inside are office landscapes whose solid elegance combines open-plan spaces of concentrated seclusion.
