Head office of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS)

The BIS Tower is 69.5 metres high and was constructed by architect Martin Burckhardt between 1972 and 1977. It houses the head office of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS).

With its striking silhouette, the building is a feature of the city's skyline. Its colours and aesthetics set the style for numerous other business and administrative buildings in the 1970s.
