The Inventions Space


The Inventions Space (Espace des inventions in french) is located at the bottom of the Lausanne Youth Valley (Vallée de la Jeunesse in french) on the shores of Lake Geneva in Vidy. It was built at the 1964 national exhibition (Expo’64) with rounded concrete shapes as was fashionable at the time and a rather unusual roof in the shape of a huge parabola and used as a sundial.

The Invention Space is an exhibition dedicated to technology that is unique in its kind. It is simply the best interactive space for children in French-speaking Switzerland, so it is highly recommended by the Torpille team.
