The masterplan is based on a solid network of public spaces to strengthen ecological, social and cultural interactions. The campus will become an urban recreational space, with nature permeating the area in various forms.

The campus is located in the Muesmatt district, northwest of Bern’s old town. The area underwent progressive development in the 20th century, leading to a fragmentation of its natural elements. Today, the neighbourhood consists of individual buildings set back from the street frontage and extensive open spaces and private gardens.

The current urban development of the Muesmatt site offers the opportunity to collectively redesign public spaces and transform them into stimulating areas at the heart of an open neighbourhood where connections between people and shared places are strengthened. The various campus areas will also significantly contribute to sustainability and climate adaptation and contribute to the overall improvement of the urban climate.

The masterplan is not just a blueprint but a vision that is deeply rooted in the community’s connection with nature. It is based on a solid network of public spaces – designed to strengthen ecological, social and cultural interactions. This concept enhances future open spaces as well as existing green spaces, gardens, promenades and parks. They all represent places of solace in urban life. The neighbourhood thus transforms into an urban recreational space, with nature permeating the area in various forms, fostering a stronger bond between the community and its environment.
