The Ivan Pictet Auditorium

The multiplicity of curves inside Maison de la paix, which does not have a single straight wall, creates original and visually stunning meeting spaces.

The 558-seat Ivan Pictet Auditorium is equipped with ultra-modern technical equipment, Matteo Grassi leather seats and a giant, high-resolution LED screen, making it an ideal venue for film screenings or presentations. 

The Auditorium can be divided into two smaller auditoriums of 348 (A1-A) and 210 (A1-B) seats.

The auditoriums are available for whole-day or half-day rentals.
