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.
