dezeen: Herzog & de Meuron, the City of Basel
Swiss practice Herzog & de Meuron has won a competition to design a new masterplan for Basel's Nordspitze area, including three residential skyscrapers.
The masterplan by Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Mueron's Basel-based firm will transform a commercial area of the city into a new urban quarter, with high-density residential blocks and two new parks.
Three slim, cylindrical towers are planned – one at 160-metres tall and two at 135-metres – along with a row of 30-metre-high cubic residential buildings. A new city park will fill the space around the towers.
