a cultural venue in the heart of Geneva
Quartier Libre, the SIG exhibition space
Quartier Libre is a space dedicated to culture, with diverse, interactive and educational exhibitions on:
The Underground of Geneva
Underground construction has been performed for many years: either to lay the foundations for constructions and the sanitation of buildings or for the purpose of storing, hiding, protecting and burying. Since the early ages, mankind has worked underground to extract raw materials and draw water. More recently, with the development of human activity and its mobility, the underground world has become an invaluable resource for transport, the distribution of fluids and to compensate for the increasing scarcity of surface areas.
Metamorphosed into a vaulted labyrinth, the SIG Quartier Libre exhibition space features more than 60 sites and activities developed in the Geneva underground. A favourite subject for SIG, whose mission and projects are mainly performed in underground or underwater environments.
