By 2040, the Hönggerberg campus will be a place of study and research that combines a pleasant work environment with space to relax and socialise.

The central Wolfgang-Pauli-Strasse will be transformed into a boulevard with facilities open to the public on the ground floors, including cafés, shops, and exhibitions. Public gardens and open spaces will complete the campus, making it a welcoming location for ETH members, guests, and visitors alike. Continue reading EM2N

Within the context of a precise response to the public urban spaces in front, a number of spaces in the interior will be radically transformed to create hybrid transitional areas. While also securing the place of the former Citroën Yser car factory in the memory of the city, the aim is, above all, that the Kanal cultural centre should lead the way to the city’s future.
