Gala Dinner

BFMDate: Thursday, August, 28th, 2014
Place : Bâtiment des Forces Motrices





“Le Bâtiment des Forces Motrices” is an example of the successful restoration and transformation of an industrial site.

This majestic edifice was built between 1883 and 1892 by Théodore Turrettini, engineer and politician, in the middle of the Rhône river-bed.

Classified as an historic building in 1988, a number of mainly cultural options for its future were considered.

The place has thus assumed a new identity and a new name: BFM.
It is under the emblem of these three letters that the “Bâtiment des Forces Motrices” is now open to the public for festive, promotional or cultural events.
