An amazing city, but this building is a huge disappointment. I can't believe the city is stuck with this scar of a building in perpetuity. I expected better from Switzerland. The 80s are long gone, this sort of uninspired architecture shouldn't still be built.

This is that sort of thing you hear about someone proposing, but there's so much backlash it never gets built. How does an ugly monolith this much taller than the other buildings find its way through the bureaucracy of swiss cities? I'm amazed and appalled, this is the type of thing NIMBYs should actually prevent. I'm all for tall buildings, I love them, but at least make them interesting and not an absolute eyesore.

Interesting design and could look great in a true skyscrapercity, but in this context it's just totally out of proportions. Too bad for Basel

A crap and a planned supertall in the middle of Alps. Here's how to destroy wonderful cities and landscapes... You can buid it in Asia, not in Switzerland

A few pics by me

Actually the facade works nicely with the weather. Sunset and cloudy skies work nicely.
