Novartis Campus – Pavillon

The Novartis Pavillon, located in the park alongside the Rhine promenade, was designed by Italian architects AMDL Circle & Michele De Lucchi. As a hub for meetings and events, the building is intended to promote dialogue with the public, and therefore serves as a hinge in the opening process of the Campus toward society and the city. Its centerpiece is a multimedia exhibition that gives insight into the world of medicine and pharmaceuticals. Innovative construction elements and sustainable materials were used to build the pavilion. Its zero-energy media façade is made of organic photovoltaic cells and LED lights. It replaces traditional methods of lighting a building and displays artworks inspired by science.

The monograph includes a photo essay by Julien Lanoo, numerous plans and illustrations, contributions by AMDL Circle & Michele De Lucchi, Sabine Himmelsbach, Jenny Keller, Andreas Kofler, Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani, and Hortensia von Roda, as well as a detailed inventory by Christian W. Blaser.
