The Eric and Sylvie Boissonnas Auditorium in Flaine

Thanks to the involvement of Flaine’s founders – passionate music and art enthusiasts Éric et Sylvie Boissonnas – Marcel Breuer and associates built the Flaine auditorium, named in honor of its founders and inaugurated in 1986. The auditorium is located at Flaine Forêt. A semi-horizontal lift provides accessibility from Flaine Forum. The shape of the building’s exterior brings to mind a grand piano, and its windows reflect the surrounding mountains. In the lobby there is an impressive glistening sculpted fountain by Pol Bury comprised of 25 steel balls and flowing water, and a diptych called Jaune Secret III by Monique Frydman hangs overhead. This 500-seat auditorium is very confortable and its acoustics are exceptional. It provides ideal conditions for both the musicians and the audience.
