pRED Research Center Basel / Buildings 4-7

The pRED Center will create around1,800 modern office and laboratory workplaces. Building 6 and Building 7 of the pRED Center are the tallest high-rise laboratory buildings ever planned. The buildings are each divided into units of three storeys (so-called neighbourhoods) to create smaller, manageable research biotopes of about 140 scientists from different disciplines each. Building 5 is an office building and will offer a variety of different work opportunities through a modern office concept.

Building 4 will be used as a "convention centre". The auditorium on the ground floor can accommodate 200 people for lectures, presentations, conferences and also for seminars or banquets. In addition, Building 4 houses two "classrooms" with 50 seats each, as well as a large number of meeting rooms.

An important building block for a successful research environment is an identity-forming "campus feeling". With the linking of the buildings (Avenue), the adjacent green outdoor area (Science Square) and the Neighborhood concept.
