Summer is all about spending time in the garden. The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum is embracing the great outdoors too, as it continues its transformation into a hub serving the local community. The current structures were built in 2022 by EPFL’s Design Studio on the Conception of Space (ALICE). And they’ve been changing ever since. In total, nearly 200 architecture students have taken part in the project. With THE MUSEUM’S GARDENS, you have a new way of experiencing our grounds – and a place to sit, relax and just be.
THE MUSEUM'S GARDENS is a collaboration between the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum and the Design Studio on the Conception of Space (ALICE), a laboratory at EPFL’s School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering (ENAC). The project forms part of the “Gardens” teaching unit within the “Becoming Leman” programme, which launched in 2019.
The project is directed by Daniel Zamarbide and Teresa Cheung at ALICE, and by Pascal Hufschmid and Jonas Chereau at the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum.
