Art Deco Meeting Room


This meeting room artwork at the League of Nations in Geneva, Switzerland is almost intuitively familiar to me. I have seen this artists work before in New York at Rockefeller Center. Jose Maria Sert was a Catalan muralist working during one of my favorite times in architecture created some amazing art in some of the greatest cities in the world. When I think to the early 20th century the Woody Allen film Midnight in Paris often comes to mind. I often think that if I could go back, Owen Wilson and I would have chose the same time period. I also remind myself the only real time is now and it will only be that which we make of it.

Palais des Nations

High Level Meetings

While I was in Geneva, Switzerland I visited the Palais des Nations. This is one of those amazing buildings history buffs will LOVE as it was originally built in the late 1920’s to house the League of Nations. It has been added onto multiple times as you can tell this portion is from a more modern addition. The site is a fantastic time to tour, especially the old art deco portions of the complex. This is one of the general assembly rooms where nations meet to discuss world matters.

Happy Independence Day to everyone in the United States!
