The iconic building of the World Health Organization (WHO) Headquarters complex in Geneva, Switzerland, was designed by Jean Tschumi and inaugurated in 1966. Fifty-eight years later, WHO is undertaking an enormous project to redevelop the existing site, efficiently consolidating ten buildings into three and extending the Tschumi-designed Main Building. SANE Architecture submitted a competition proposal for the extension that draws influence from the symbolic "intelligence, creativity, and perseverance" of the Rubik's cube. Take a look at their entry, after the break.

Herzog & de Meuron Designs 205-Meter Tower and Research Center for Swiss Pharmaceutical Company

Herzog & de Meuron has unveiled plans for the modernization of the Roche pharmaceutical company’s Basel headquarters. With the first tower already under construction, the overall vision is to consolidate and update all existing facilities, including a historic Otto R. Salvisberg-designed office building, as well as construct a new, four-tower research center and 205-meter tall office tower by 2022. 

"The planned consolidation of the existing industrial site will eliminate the need to build over green zones", emphasizes Jürg Erismann, Head of the Basel/Kaiseraugst Site. "Instead, Roche will be making more efficient use of those parts of the site that have already been developed but cannot be expanded.”
