The scientific path is a route that join the Biomedical Cluster (Civic Hospital / cardiothoracic center / Swiss Stem Cells Institutte) with the Computational Sciences Cluster (Computing Center).
The path culminates in a matallic walkway (DNA bridge) that flies over the cantonal road.
The landing at the end of the walkway is a observation deck (belvedere) over the city.
The walkway, via a flight of stairs, leads to a path that crosses the forest.
The path is paved with natural stone slabs (gneiss), arranged irregularly.
It is planned the arrangement of the bridges, their parapets and a review of the existing furniture.
Along the way there are 12 corten metal stations (monoliths); the “rusty” finish integrates with the natural context of the forest.
Each of the 12 stations is dedicated to a relevant figure in the world of science.
The monoliths contain a device that projects a short video that can be viewed through one of the two openings on the sides.
The path is illuminated with 30 lamps – built with the same metal as the monoliths – oriented towards the floor.
