2002, competition
project in cooperation with prof. ir. Wim van den Bergh, Hana Cisar

The instruction for this competition contained the housing of specified instances, like the university ETH, the centre of management Kanton Genève, a library and certain national and international instances, known as “Maison de la Paix”.
The 30.000 m2 groundplan is divided into several buildings, located around a central square, on which communal activities such as cafés, restaurants and the entrances towards the underground congress rooms are located. All buildings are covered in an abstract type of facade, which suggest only one building instead of several. However, when entering the building, this illusion will be disappeared soon enough.
