What the Lausanners think
«Open since last October, the Fine Arts Museum, an architectural masterpiece in my view, presides over the museum hub, Lausanne’s new arts district. Named Plateforme 10, we look forward to seeing it completed with the Photography Museum and the MUDAC. I enjoy strolling along the arcades before going for a snack at the Nabi, the MCBA’s restaurant.»

«Lausanne now has a new museum and a new skate park as well! This new building dedicated to fine art and modern architecture will also attract skateboard enthusiasts. The promenade on the site includes several sloping platforms which are sure to inspire skateboarders to show off their kickflips and other manoeuvres in their repertoire.»

«THE cultural place to be in Lausanne, just a step away from the train station. Everytime we visit, we can't help but take a picture of the Luce e ombra tree in the MCBA's entrance hall.»
