Neuchâtel, Centre Dürrenmatt Neuchâtel
After Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s death in 1990 his former house and garden were donated to the Swiss Confederation and Mario Botta designed the plans for its conversion into the CDN, a unit of the Swiss National Library. A new entrance tower was added next to Dürrenmatt's existing house and the curved exhibition room built into the natural slope of the garden. Construction started in 1998 and the inauguration happened in the fall of 2000.
