A former chemical production plant, the Novartis campus in Basel - headquarters of the international chemical research company - is being transformed into a state-of-the-art research, development and management site by the company.

Based on a master plan created by architect and urban planner Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani, with buildings designed by renowned architects from around the world, the campus will develop into 'a modern workplace, geared to communication', with each unique strucure 'created to meet the specific requirements of the building’s users.'

With construction projected until 2030, this aerial view offers an ideal perspective to see the whole campus as it is now, together with buildings planned for the next 2 years.
