UN Geneva: the way we were

In 1926, an international architectural competition was opened in 1926 with the intention to construct a building that would “allow the organs of the League of Nations to work, to preside and to hold discussions, independently and easily in the calm atmosphere which should prevail when dealing with problems of an international dimension.”
377 projects were submitted, but the jury of architects was unable to reach a final decision. The League then commissioned the 5 architects behind the favourite proposals to work together on a joint project. The foundation stone was laid on 7 September 1929.
Join us on the 7th of October to enjoy the Palais and have a look at the wonderful photo exhibition by Mr. Patrick Jacquet.
