The WIPO Conference Hall was recently completed as part of the World Intellectual Property Organization's campus in Geneva, Switzerland. The stylish building sits in between the organization's main and administrative buildings, all of which were designed and built by Behnisch Architekten for WIPO, which is a self-funding agency of the United Nations.

The ornate WIPO Conference Hall appears more like a sculpture in the middle of the campus and sits within the campus' garden. The conference hall was designed entirely with sustainability practices in mind and features a timber interior that makes for a calming, user friendly environment.

The conference hall can host up to 900 delegates and boasts state of the art seating and unique light spheres that make the space feel modern and accessible.
