In 2000, mudac succeeded to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs and settled at the foot of Lausanne cathedral. Since then, it has become the world -class Lausanne institution when it comes to contemporary design and applied arts. Designed as a space for encounters and debates between the various players in this field, the museum is also open to living arts (dance, music, theatre) and intends to be a platform for exchanges between the arts.
