The narrative is based on original sources from the Archives de la construction moderne (Acm) and on data and facts from local technical literature. Most attention is paid to reinforced-concrete frame structures. This method of construction had been well-rooted in French-speaking Switzerland since Samuel de Molin became a dealer of the Hennebique system in Lausanne in 1892. Hidden behind cut-stone facades (Jean Taillens and Charles Dubois, UBS Building, Lausanne, 1922) or skilfully exposed (Fernand Dumas and Denis Honegger, University of Fribourg, 1937–1941; Marc Piccard, College du Belvedere, Lausanne, 1952–1965), the reinforced-concrete skeleton was a capital resource for architects and engineers, and was developed over the decades, under the influence of cultural, technical and formal factors.
