Novartis Headquarters, Forum

The Forum, a major urban space that recalls the old town squares of Basel, is shaped by a bosque of 35 large pin oaks (a species historically significant in the religious life of Basel, thanks to the Celts). The space also contains a sculpture by Ulrich Requiem, a large koi pond, and a turnaround that holds a highly symbolic magnolia—“the tree of gratification”—which blooms at the time company profits are reported.
