In Switzerland, the city of Lausanne has created three museums in one with the completion of Plateforme 10, a new cultural touchpoint with innovative architecture.
The urban landscape of central Lausanne is undergoing momentous change. The creation of a new cultural centre with ultra-modern buildings has brought three separate museums to the same site. This cultural and architectural gambit has created a place where all art forms are given free rein, from emerging talents to experienced artists.
Lausanne modernises its city centre with Plateforme 10
Because the existing facilities had become too small to deal with the rising amount of traffic, which prevented permanent exhibitions from being held, the city’s local authorities decided to take the plunge. Located just next to the train station, a 25 000 m² lot used to store trains was repurposed, and two futuristic mega-structures were built nearby.
An updated multicultural offer
To satisfy its residents’ thirst for culture, Lausanne’s Cantonal Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts (which features paintings), and the Musée de l'Élysée (which features every photographic style imaginable) have increased the appeal of this beautiful Swiss city. Plus, don’t miss out on beautifully designed luxury hotels overlooking the Lake of Geneva.
