Slideshow: Luzern Culture and Congress Center - by Jean Nouvel, Luzern, Switzerland
A unique piece of architecture in a beautiful city. The Luzern Culture and Congress Center calmly sits at the edge of the lake, reflections of the immense cantilevered roof sparkle in the water. The boardwalks surrounding the building are alive with people flowing in and out of the restaurants, cafes, theaters and museum within. It is really a fantastic design, especially the facades facing the water. It is iconic and yet isn't presumptuous. It doesn't shout for attention yet draws crouds under its extended canopy. Truly spectacular architecture.
