Located in the extension of the eastern entrance of the Palais des Nations, the Place des Nations is a decidedly contemporary work. On the ground, there is the contrast between the granite of various colours representing the diversity of nations, and the concrete strips that are the traditional building material of Geneva. A dozen water jets of varying heights shoot up directly from the ground. The square is also home to the gigantic "Broken Chair", symbol of the fight against landmines and the fresco of peace, a huge ceramic mosaic created by Swiss artist Hans Erni at the age of 100.
