Lausanne’s Musée Cantonal des Beaux-Arts (MCBA)
The inauguration of Lausanne’s new Musée Cantonal des Beaux-Arts in 2019 came as part of efforts to redevelop the entire area near the city’s train station. The museum’s steps bear the print of Agglotech.
Agglotech designed a fully custom material based on the indications of Barozzi Veiga, architects for the Lausanne museum project. Agglotech’s Venetian terrazzo chosen for a staircase, with a thickness of 5 cm, is particularly suited to use indoors for stairs and flooring of all sizes. Its highly resistant surface makes this terrazzo both durable and easy to clean.
The museum covers a total surface area of over 20,000 sq m, near the city’s main train station, a plot of land that was previously occupied by 19th-century industrial buildings. The Venetian terrazzo underscores the building’s historical context while giving it a new, more modern look.
