PLH won the competition for a new workplace design concept, sponsored by WHO as part of its strategy to revitalize headquarters in Geneva. The design concept – “spices of the world” – is inspired by the vast blend of nationalities employed at WHO. Following the initial competition, PLH developed a master plan for the proposed refurbishment of headquarter facilities.
The facility comprises several buildings of varying age and condition. The most significant one is the main building by Jean Tschumi which is a strong late modernist building with some striking interior spaces, such as the main arrival level and general assembly hall. However, like the other buildings, it lacks the flexibility to respond to the dynamic nature of WHO today.
