Last week was the opening of the Ricola Herb Center in Laufen. The clay building by Herzog & de Meuron is with 100

meters one of the largest contemporary construction of this kind. The materials for the chaussee, the gravel and the

facade strips can be also found in the clay facade itself and come from a radius of 8-10km from the Herb Center.

For the meadow around the center, we have developed a seed which contains 8 of the 13 typical herbs of the

Ricola mixture. For more information see links below:
