The Archives Fund

Made up of more than 60,000 documents (including 15,000 inventory sheets), the archives of the Braillard Architects Foundation offer anyone wishing to immerse themselves in Geneva’s heritage, privileged access.

The collection includes the archives of Maurice Braillard (1870-1965) and his sons Pierre (1911-2009) and Charles (1921-1980). It is an important testimony to the Geneva debate and architectural production of the 20th century, from the “Heimatstil” experiences of Maurice’ first production to the emergence of modern and then international architecture, to the many Pierre and Charles’ achievements, stemming from the strong urban and architectural conditions of the fifties to eighties.

Here you will find the link to access the inventory of the archives, a selection of the works of the architects Braillard and their biographies.
