The new Biozentrum in Basel was handed over to the University of Basel at the beginning of 2021 and will start regular classes in autumn 2021. The high-tech building designed by Ilg Santer Architects from Zurich, represents a state-of-the-art research facility within a prestigious academic building.
The modern tower for the new Biozentrum extends over 19 floors, of which three are under ground, while ten floors are reserved for research. In addition to the Biozentrum, the building also houses the university computer center, lecture halls, seminar rooms as well as a public cafeteria. Thanks to innovative and user-oriented lighting design, the Biozentrum is featured both architecturally and functionally as a high-tech and future-oriented building.
