Luminous urban building block: The new theatre building on the former railway site constitutes the new cultural centre of the district. In Geneva’s Eaux-Vives district, following the creation of an underground railway station, a narrow, long plot of land was cleared and became the site for an esplanade and the new building for the Nouvelle Comédie, the new centre of the heterogeneous quarter. At a first glance, the striking, longitudinal rectangular building with its staggered silhouette resembles a factory hall.
