The Europan location La Jonction in Geneva is where the Rhone and Arve rivers meet. The basic plan is to enhance the unique quality of this place by opening up the existing urban structure. The result will be an urban campus with a number of buildings, each with their own varied programmatic and spatial characteristics. Variety is key, with the proposal including approximately 400 homes, a theatre, a swimming pool & gym, a day-care facility and a restaurant. The Kugler factory with its studios and workspaces for artists will remain, while the TPG building will be converted into a hotel. A new pedestrian bridge will connect the area with the Rhone’s north bank.
