The HGK FHNW (Hochschule für Gestaltung und Kunst Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz, i.e. University of Design and Art, University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland) was the initial project on the Dreispitz area. The 47 m high building houses the lecture halls, offices, workshops and exhibition rooms, as well as the library on the top floor. It was designed by Morger Partner Architekten and built between 2010 and 2014.
Another interesting FHNW building is the one at Campus Muttenz.
