We stumbled across this whilst lost but it was a great find. The inspiration of the buildings looks to have a Gaudi influence and lots of bright colours. It was definitely an interesting find.

We stumbled upon these buildings in our search for a restaurant. We ended up eating right across the street. Lots of fun to look at. Since we didn't know how much of a landmark this was we marveled a the cool decks, took pics and...More

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.

Its very unique and worth the visit. You need at least 30 min to fully grasp the size of the place. Would visit again

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.

At first, I just ignored them--weird buildings, who cares?--but if you are in Geneva for longer than a couple of days, head here to take in some different sights. The architects were inspired by Gaudi, with his natural forms and no right angles. From the...More

I have always been interested in architecture and buildings either classically beautiful or ones which are different. These buildings, there's a few in a cluster, more commonly known as the 'Smurf Buildings', are certainly different and probably in this period of time far from classical....More

There are a few interesting buildings to see here - they are located in a avery quiet place. There's also a coffee/ tea house in the area, but other than that there's not much to do there.
