This administrative building, designed in the early 1970s, stood out by its very typical structure. Its expressive architecture is particularly emblematic of the constructive concepts of its time, and its location in the Geneva urban fabric particularly successful.

This building rests on a washed concrete base surmounted by four fully glazed floors. A framework moulded with massive Cor-Ten steel beams acts as service passageways and brise-soleil.

This building underwent a large-scale renovation in 2004.
