The Foundation

Created in 1987, the Braillard Architectes Foundation is a Swiss institution recognized as being of public utility. Its goal is to ensure a better cultural diffusion of architecture and urban planning of quality, in the wake of architects Braillard (Maurice, Pierre and Charles). Located at rue Saint-Léger 16, Geneva, the Foundation continues its main missions:

• the protection and enhancement of the architectural heritage, particularly the Braillard archives;

• the promotion of architecture in accordance with the objectives of the ecological transition;

• carrying out and supporting studies and research on the relationship between the built environment and the environment.

The Braillard Architectes Foundation recognizes the current challenges posed by a world in the process of transformation to the built environment, a subject open to multiple expertise, practices and professions. Among these is architecture - both art, craft and discipline. Its methods, processes, projects and achievements constitute a necessary body of work for the design of ecologically sustainable future lifestyles.
