    • In 2000, Mrs. Mach-Gaensslen donated CHF 100'000 to the Faculty of Science for a project of its choosing.
    • For the use of this money, the Faculty collected projects.

    • A commission made of representatives of the University buildings service and of members of the Faculty elaborated the Plan in 2003.
    • The furniture, appliances, and tableware was acquired thanks to the generous support of additional donors for 40000.-
