At 178 metres high, the Roche Tower is the tallest building in Switzerland. It was completed in September 2015 and overtook Zurich’s Prime Tower which stands at 126 metres. The building cost 550 million Swiss Francs to build and was funded the Roche, the pharmaceutical giant that has its headquarters in Switzerland. The sky-scraping building is rather flatly called “Building 1”, which admittedly is a less impressive feat of creativity.
