The MCBA & Lausanne’s new “Arts District”

The Musée Cantonal des Beaux-Arts (MCBA), designed by the architects Fabrizio Barozzi and Alberto Veiga, opened in October 2019 in the heart of PLATEFORME 10, Lausanne’s new “Arts District”.

This museum is part of a broader masterplan by Estudio Barozzi Veiga and will be linked to another modern building, designed by the architects Manuel and Francisco Aires Mateus, which will gather the Musée de l’Elysée (Cantonal Museum of Photography) and the mudac (Museum of Design and Contemporary Applied Arts).

This union will be complemented by the presence of the Toms Pauli and Félix Vallotton Foundations, and will form a genuine cultural platform.
