Novartis Campus - Forum 3
Novartis Campus at Basel will be an international significant place of knowledge and innovation.
Roger Diener, Helmut Federle and Gerold Wiederin designed and realized the first building, the Forum 3. It is one of the aims of this project to foster communication, creativity and the commitment of the associates through an aesthetic and functional approach to the design of the working environment. Both in the building interior and also in the outer spaces, a wide variety of working and meeting areas are being created-providing open, transparent, versatile and flexible spaces that offer plenty of scope for interaction and interdisciplinary teamwork.
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 with places of concentrated seclusion.
