This building sits on the edge of the downtown in Basel, about halfway between the train station and the river. Botta's design for the UBS bank (now the BIS bank) is his largest north of the Alps. The powerful half-circle design is used often in his projects as well as the alternating bands of light and dark stone. It's presence dominates the Aeschenplatz, yet it's symmetry and curving facade fit perfectly into the site.
