Designed by Herzog & de Meuron, the Messe Basel New Hall stands out as an important urban planning matter for the development of the surrounding Kleinbasel neighborhood. The exceptional photographic work of Hufton + Crow highlights the highly modern building and optimum exhibition areas while showing how this interconnected design ensures flexibility for various events. The concentration of exhibition halls around the Messeplatz (Exhibition Square) is the key entrepreneurial aim of the Messe Basel leadership in its further development. A complete gallery of images can be viewed after the break.

I think they are renders because it hasn't finished yet.

Nathan, I also thought directly : "these are renders!". Doesn't look like photos, unless the presence of persons...
(The map is not good, there is no ocean near Basel!)

These photos look disturbingly like renders. The building is like a representation of itself. Creepy.

Can you elaborate : "Messe Basel New Hall...stands out as an important urban planning matter for the development of the surrounding Kleinbasel neighborhood"
