The project

The Cantonal Museum of Fine Arts (MCBA) in Lausanne defines a new urban space which establishes a symbolic dialogue with the site's industrial railway history. On the outside, the building is characterized by its monolithic and elongated volume. Inside, large-span prefabricated slabs are supported by deep beams made of prestressed concrete. This structural solution provides vast column-free exhibition spaces.

The project

The roof structure is made of steel girders whose geometry was refined to harmonize with the complex system of three-dimensional sheds for zenithal lighting and the passage of ventilation ducts.
