Signal Box Auf dem Wolf

Herzog and De Meuron
location Basel
function control centre
contributed by DinaBM

An impressive monolith made out of concrete and wrapped in 20 cm wide strips of copper, this building includes six floors of workspaces where railway switches are controlled electronically. By wrapping copper strips all around the building, a kind of a Faraday cage that protects the electronic equipment has been created. This sculpture-like tower stands right next to Herzog & de Meuron's train depot and improves the urban quality of this previously nondescript industrial area. Seen from the southwest, it provides an unexpected counterpoint to memorial stones of the nearby 19th c. cemetery Wolfgottesacker.
