The cultural programming of the Fondation suisse aims above all to provide a springboard for young Swiss talent from all artistic and scientific disciplines.

The Fondation suisse is also keen to promote openness to all the world’s cultures, and shares its commitment to multicultural dialogue by hosting concerts and exhibitions by musicians and artists from all backgrounds. The residence is also a forum for scientific outreach and socio-political debate.


In keeping with its status as a historical monument and iconic Le Corbusier building, the Foundation suisse proposes events, conferences and exhibitions related to the architecture of the building or to current issues in architecture and urbanism more generally.

These events are open to all residents of the International University Campus in Paris and to the wider public.
