The former working-class district of St. Johann exemplifies the way Basel is moving into the future. With the completion of the city's northern bypass road and the creation of the Novartis Campus, the whole district has been transformed and is now a showcase for contemporary Basel architecture.
The residential building by HHF Architekten at Lichtstrasse 9 is particularly striking. Further to the west, between Voltaplatz and Basel St. Johann station, both residential and commercial buildings by Christ & Gantenbein, Heinrich Degelo and Buchner Bründler Architekten as well as the musicians' residence by Buol & Zünd Architekten were constructed in 2010.
