It is kinda a fun building hidden in middle of Geneva. I am not sure why it's called Schtroumph building but it's worth to have a look at.

We stayed in Geneva for a couple of days and saw that we were only a short distance from the Grottes district and the Smurf buildings. As a frequent visitor to Barcelona, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to these Gaudi inspired public housing. Don't just...More

How on earth did they get the go ahead to build this monstrosity is anyone's guess... absolutely zero architectural interest and a curse places on the neighbours as values must have plummeted hard after this awful building was built.

I find these strange looking buildings quite ugly. It would be a waste of time to go out of one's way to see them.

If you have some free time, take a quick look on unusual architecture. This is very interesting design of the buildings just a few minutes walk from train station.
