Universitätsspital und Frauenklinik,
Spitalstrasse 21, 4056Basel
The two neighbouring buildings bring together architectural history and modernity: Klinikum 1 was built in 1945 under the direction of Hermann Baur, while the Women's Health Clinic was created much later in 2003 by Silvia Gmür and Livio Vacchini.
Klinikum 1 is one of the oldest large hospitals in Switzerland and is considered a modern classic. The striking glass façade of the Women's Health Clinic is a particular highlight. Spitalstrasse is also home to the avant-garde Institute for Hospital Pharmaceuticals, which was designed by Herzog & de Meuron.
