Published in the form of a full-color comic strip and driven principally by the characters Michel and Patricia from Godards A Bout de Souffle, MetroBasel is a comprehensive urban study and portrait of Basel and its surroundings. Realized by the urban research unit ETH StudioBasel, the comic was conceived by Jacques Herzog, Pierre de Meuron and Manuel Herz and narrates the city's architectural and urban history while analyzing the region according to urban themes and activities such as living, working, moving or recreation. At the same time it uncovers potentials and shortcomings, ideas and visions of how MetroBasel can transform itself and realize its full potential.
