In Switzerland, companies and institutes are drafting in world-famous architects to redesign their sites. Among the flagship projects is Building 92 at Roche in Basel. This glass-fronted research lab was designed by Herzog and de Meuron, the architects behind the highly acclaimed conversion of a London power station into the Tate Modern art gallery. Eventually the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne also wants to revamp its industrial-feeling campus. In February it launched an international architecture competition to design a "landmark" library.
