For many years the extension existed only in the form of plans and models; now the building has reached its full height and is changing the face of Heimplatz.
At a media briefing, Member of the City Council and Head of the Structural Engineering Department André Odermatt emphasized the significance of the Chipperfield structure to the urban landscape: together with the existing Kunsthaus and the Schauspielhaus the new building will enhance the role of Heimplatz as a cultural hub and as a gateway to the university district.
