Bring together in a single location the Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts (MCBA) - which will house the Toms Pauli and Félix Vallotton Foundations, the Musée de l'Elysée (Cantonal Photography Museum), and the mudac (Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts) will create a unique space entirely devoted to culture on the site of the former locomotive sheds in Lausanne, Switzerland. The MCBA opened at PLATEFORME 10 in october 2019. The Musée de l'Elysée and the mudac, currently closed to prepare for their move, will be inaugurated at PLATEFORME 10 in 2022.

The MCBA, the mudac and the Musée de l'Elysée present the diversity of their respective collections from an innovative angle. This pioneering project, initiated thanks to the Engagement Migros development fund, aims to test and develop new digitization and interactive presentation solutions with mediation programs. For the first phase, the three museums present works from their digitized collections in 3D by the start-up Artmyn.
Taking its cue from the turntable evoking the site’s railway heritage, the building designed by architects Fabrizio Barozzi and Alberto Veiga for the Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts (MCBA) opens up a new urban space, bordered to the north by a series of arcades which will be the scene of activities also linked to the cultural field. This space, akin to an aisle of culture, leads to the building that will house the Musée de l’Elysée (Cantonal Museum of Photography) and the mudac (Museum of Design and Contemporary Applied Arts), the fruit of architects Manuel and Francisco Aires Mateus. A cultural platform to be discovered exclusively, in its virtual representation.
