BIZ building by Mario Botta

This impressive building designed by famous architect Mario Botta is home to the Bank for International Settlements (BIS). The six-storey building is typical of the style of the architect from the Swiss canton of Ticino.

The round building on Aeschenplatz impresses with its two-tone striped natural stone walls and its 'negative staircase' opening in the façade, which narrows as it climbs the side of the building. The building was originally commissioned by the Swiss bank UBS and was taken over by its current occupants in 1998.
