BASEL, SWITZERLAND, 12 December 2017 – The entry of Herzog & de Meuron has been announced as the winner of the competition for a new master plan for the Nordspitze (the northernmost part of the Dreispitz Areal in Basel). The winning proposal was chosen from six submissions. It is balancing a high density mixed program with two large, publicly accessible green spaces.
The chance to work on this project is of particular significance for us: It will give us a chance to further manifest the ideas we generated together with Rémy Zaugg in “Eine Stadt im Werden?” in 1991, and our investigations in “Vision Dreispitz” in 2001.
Together with Migros, the Christoph Merian Stiftung, and the City of Basel, Herzog & de Meuron will further develop the project and establish a basis for the necessary zoning plan (Bebauungsplan).
