Central Signal Box
Herzog & de Meuron, Basel, Switzerland
Competition 1994, project 1995, realization 1998-1999
The new main Signal Tower is situated in the railroad yards at the southeast bank of the bridge, Muenchensteinerbrücke. Being as close to the street as an apartment or office building, it relates as much to the city as it does to the railroad yards. Thanks to its object-like character, the building is spatially linked to the other solitary buildings that characterize this disparate urban area. www.herzogdemeuron.com/index/projects/complete-works/101-...
