Novartis Campus at Basel is an international significant place of knowledge, innovation and encounters, characterized by far-reaching visions of urban space and architecture. Peter Märklis Visitor Center was the second building to be finished in that area.

With his building Peter Märkli is relying on architecture's traditional terminology in order to win back lost or forgotten values. This is achieved within contemporary forms and composition and also means exposing the inherent qualities of the materials. Champagne-coloured profiles at the outside, gleaming marble at the inside, yew- and olive-wood as well as cast aluminium at the banisters and the lettering create a richness and variety of materialisation.

This publication presents photos of Paolo Rosselli und Goran Potkonjak as well as drawings and sketches by Peter Märkli, showing his design strategy. Ulrike Jehle-Schulte Strathaus has written an introduction to the building, also appreciating the artistic contributions by Jenny Holzer, Alex Herter und Bringolf, Irion, Vögeli as integral parts of the building.
