Replacement of tropical house at the University of Basel

Project overview

In a team together with gauer itten messerli Architekten AG, we convinced the jury in the general-planner competition with our “extremely high-standard and concentrated […] roof, facade and volume proposal […] with good daylight yield, which is extremely important for the plants”. The shell and support structure blend into each other with glazing posts and crossbars that also serve as columns and girders.
