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.»
