Presentation of the Gardens


Description

With The Museum’s Gardens, works by more than 100 architecture students from the ALICE laboratory at EPFL will go on display in the Museum’s gardens and public areas. The eight wooden installations will give families, employees, local residents and passers-by a chance to explore and experience the site in a different light.

How can the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum transform into an open, welcoming community hub at the heart of Geneva’s international district? How can the site better cater to a wider audience? And how can the Museum become a place where people stop and spend time, instead of simply passing through? These questions were the genesis of a collaboration with EPFL’s Design Studio on the Conception of Space (ALICE), a project that takes a fresh look at the Museum’s public spaces, both indoors and outdoors. The result is a series of full-scale installations – designed and built by 110 budding architects – that offer a new way to experience the Museum.
