Lecture on the Pilatus Arena at the arc-afterwork on 23.03.

In and around Lucerne, a strong change has taken place in recent years. The city and the neighbouring municipalities are developing from heterogeneous agglomerations into urban districts. The lecture series is dedicated to various current projects in order to make the development tangible. On this evening, Lorenzo Giuliani will present the Pilatus Arena project in Kriens, which represents an essential building block for the development area in the "Lucerne South".

YES to the University of Applied Sciences Centre Graubünden

We are very pleased about the clear YES of the people of Graubünden to the new building for the University of Applied Sciences Graubünden. This will provide the FHGR with a modern, state-of-the-art and sustainable infrastructure that will bring together the locations spread across the city into a central campus. Construction is scheduled to start at the end of 2024, and the building due to come on stream in 2028.

We are already looking forward to the coming steps.

Partial revision of “Sonderbauvorschriften Neu-Oerlikon”

We are pleased to announce that the "Sonderbauvorschriften Neu-Oerlikon" have been in force since 01.02.23. The basis for the revised SBV Neu-Oerlikon was our test planning of 2016 and the "Masterplan Neu-Oerlikon" derived from it.


The master plan defines where which open spaces should be created and it prepares the way for the protection of two important industrial monuments such as Hall 550 and the historic ABB Building 87T. The master plan also specifies where the permissible building heights and uses may be exceeded and how they can be densified with high urban development quality.
