The activities will take place in two important milestones from an historic and architectural point of view for the city of Renens: the Swiss Heritage awarded Concert Hall and the ECAL – The University of Art and Design Lausanne at Iril building which was once a nylon factory and is now considered one of the best design schools. This year, the public will be able to access a large part of the building of the ECAL and see the EPFL + ECAL Lab and at the Ateliers de La Ville de Renens  for exhibitions. Plus, there will be new space born from an idea of designer and professor at ECAL Christophe Marchand, Design Studio: a former factory converted into a workspace for young designers.
