Of ultra-modern concept and harmoniously integrated into an environment worthy of preservation, the urban woodland of La Grande Boissière, the building designed by the architects Wilmotte & Associés is intended for students of the International School of Geneva (Ecolint), cultural institutions and the general public. Its generous proportions house an auditorium that seats 400, a 155-seat theatre, a theatre studio, a dance studio, a recording studio and numerous classrooms, as well as exhibition space.
The Centre des arts hosts staged productions, workshops and conferences, and welcomes resident professional artists. Through its programming and the development of partnerships with local and international artistic communities, the Centre des arts will greatly enrich the teaching programmes of Ecolint. Open to a range of different audiences, it provides Geneva with a genuine cultural platform for the transmission of the arts and interdisciplinary exchanges.
