Important information
Due to the current events related to the Covid-19 epidemic, ArtLab will keep its doors closed until at least April 30. We will keep you informed of any changes. We look forward to welcoming you as soon as this particular situation has passed.


Attached to the EPFL College of Humanities (CdH), Artlab presents temporary and long-term exhibitions that bring the world of science and the Humanities closer together. It also houses a Montreux Jazz Café in which it is possible to consult the festival’s audio-visual archives. Opened in the fall of 2016, the building was designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma.

The 3 pavilions of the building

Located in the northern part of the ArtLab building, open to the Esplanade, the Datasquare presents a long-term exhibition on the theme of big data.

This space, the most spacious in the building, hosts temporary exhibitions that showcase, through technology, a scientific, artistic, historical and cultural heritage.

Located in the southern part of the building, on the lake side, this space is dedicated to the enhancement of the Montreux Jazz Festival archives, which are registered in the UNESCO Memory of the World Register.
