Did you know ?

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).

In order to allow work to begin in the Trois-Chêne area, the old Chêne-Bourg station building, built in 1887, was moved 33 metres on rails in the summer of 2013.

The station's 220-metre-long platforms are built approximately seven metres below ground level. The Chêne-Bourg stop was inaugurated on 15 December 2019 for the Léman Express commissioning.

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.

 

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 Raphaela Vogel, My Appropriation of Her Holy Hollowness, video installation, 13'17'' and 05'04'', 2021. Work produced for Mire by the Fonds cantonal d'art contemporain, Geneva.
