14 km of track, tunnels and bridges and five new stations were built in the Canton of Geneva to commission the Léman Express. This historic project is known as CEVA (Cornavin - Eaux-Vives - Annemasse).

The Lancy-Bachet stop is located at the heart of a strategic zone: The southern entrance to Geneva. It connects all the surrounding districts (Carouge, La Chapelle, Grand-Lancy) and gives access to Geneva Stadium. The 220-metre long quays are 16 metres below ground level.
 

Ateliers Jean Nouvel, in charge of the architectural concept for the new CEVA stations, followed the glass brick road. Although they are all different in shape and size, the stations have one thing in common: their glass bricks. They can be easily identified. Used as a wall, floor or roof element, these bricks allow natural light to filter through. In Lancy-Bachet, the transparent building components provide daylight to the underground quays.

 

Built fifty years ago, the Marignac swimming pool is now a classified Historical Monument. It is the work of the architects Georges Brera, Pierre Nierlé, and Paul Waltenspühl. Built between 1967 and 1968, swimmers enjoy a mineral amphitheatre from below ground level, sheltered from the noise of the city. Concrete was very popular at the time and is everywhere. Even the diving board seems to have sprung from the ground like a gigantic sculpture. The pool, located between the main road and the railway line, was a genuine architectural challenge.

 

Mire is a public art programme devised by the Fonds cantonal d'art contemporain (FCAC) in collaboration with the Centre d'Art Contemporain de Genève and the Office de l'urbanisme, with the cooperation of the SBB. This exposition of moving images and works of art is unlike no other in a public space.

The project is an artistic journey with audiovisual works by Swiss and international artists, integrated into the Jean Nouvel's station architecture.

Mire is unique as it focuses on video creations on a transport line. It's the first time that such a structure hosts varied programmes over a ten-year period. Indeed, it is a form of evolutionary building integrating images within the station.

Work by Matthew Lutz-Kinoy, Goat of Paradise, video installation, 1st screen 12'20'', 2nd screen, 2021. Work produced for Mire by the Fonds cantonal d'art contemporain, Geneva.
