The project

The Water City Aquatis is a new scientific cultural center dedicated to fresh water and to the protection of the Environment. As a unique project in reinforced concrete, Aquatis settles on the existing platform of the P+R Vennes in Lausanne, facing many challenges . Within a circular plan, the museum hosts an interactive tour through the 5 continents with 2 main aquariums, a tropical forest and a restaurant.
