Behnisch Architekten Breaks Ground on Cancer Research Center in Switzerland

Behnisch Architekten has announced the groundbreaking of the AGORA—Cancer Research Center located in Lausanne, Switzerland within sight of Lake Geneva. As the new home of the Swiss Institute for Experimental Cancer Research (ISREC), the Center will bring together 400 researchers, scientists, doctors, and clinicians under the goal of enhanced communication. 

The new AGORA building will connect to an existing building on one side, with minimal disruptions to existing programming. “Visual relationships both on the site and to the landscape beyond require a carefully defined building mass and the new building responds sensitively to these site conditions while sculpturally standing out from its heterogeneous surroundings.”

The office of Peter Zumthor has been selected to design an expansion to the Beyeler Foundation, located just outside Zumthor’s childhood home of Basel, Switzerland. The Swiss architect was chosen from a prestigious shortlist of 11 firms to add to the existing museum building, designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop and completed in 1997.

“The sky above Basel, the city and its surroundings–those are the landscapes of my youth,” said Zumthor. “It is heart-warming to be able to design a major building here.”

Exhibition: Stadiums Past and Future

Exhibition: Stadiums Past and Future

At the Olympic Games, STADIUMS are real eye-catchers. But what do we know about these giant structures? Emblematic of the Olympic Games, STADIUMS also represent a challenge for the host city. With a long history, they refer to the past while turning to the future. With this new programme, The Olympic Museum is exploring the adventure of these buildings whose impact is measured beyond the 16 days of competition.
