Under the name of Green Bank, the property was home until his death in 1960, General Guisan, commander of the Swiss Army during the Second World War 1939-1945
Property of the Swiss Confederation in 1971, Green Bank is now managed by a private association center.
And since beginning of May you can discover the universe of Didier Guex, a brilliant Swiss and self-made artist. He uses different techniques to create. It goes from the plaster and metal we have here up to Bronze, Stone, aluminum, concrete or patinated plaster.
Here are 14 sculptures plaster on metal exposed in the gardens and 12 sculptures inside the centre at the Espace Pohl.
Here are some shots made by Cédric Dauch during the visit of the exhibition.
All these works of plaster on metal, shows a more decadent vision of men. Adding some accessories like a fishnet on all sculptures makes it more “human”. Some of the sculptures are very surprising, others look more like a study on body’s anatomy. In both cases, all sculptures are well placed, taking the best each visitor will be ready to give afterwards,
The exhibition will run until october 2013. Here are some useful information. The gardens are often opened. So if you are walking around by the Lake Geneva, between Ouchy and Pully.

International Fashion Trends For 2013
The chances of meeting someone you already know may seem slim while traveling, but you’ll to be meeting a whole new bunch of people, even if it’s just the passengers on board with you on the plane.
What better way is there to make a good impression on people you’re just about to meet for the first time, even if it is in passing, than to look fashion forward even on the go?
Traveling doesn’t mean you’ve to sacrifice on fashion; looking and feeling good is your right wherever you go.
Here are the top international fashion trends for 2013
1. Shoes to Choose
Traveling in style does not imply that you must wear something over the top. You can wear something that is comfortable yet in fashion so that you don’t get stressed out on that nine hour flight and even if you do, you do it in style.
There are plenty of flats that you can choose from. If you’re traveling to a city with a warm climate, you could go for gladiator sandals. However, if you’re just seeking comfort with style, you could wear a pair of ballet flats. These are mostly in trend with a very glitzy twist it won’t be a bad idea to wear a pair with loads of glitter on it.
2. Designer Suitcases
Why restrict your fashion fever to your clothing alone when there are other items to your traveling needs that can be made more stylish as well? There are countless designers that make suitcase sets for you to buy and travel in style.
Whether it’s a small carry on to a large trunk, designer suitcases come in a variety of sizes for all your traveling needs. Furthermore, with a traveling suitcase set, there is little chance of the departure and arrival airport transportation services mixing up your luggage with someone else’s.
3. Trust a Jacket
No matter where you’re headed, keeping a jacket is a wise decision. If it’s a warm city you’re headed for, keep a light summer jacket and for harsh weather conditions, maybe something furry (faux would be great).
Keeping a jacket not only makes you look chic and sophisticated, but also protects you from any unexpected weather at your chosen destination. Jackets also are easy to dress up or down in. Once on the plane, you can take it off and relax and then easily pull it on when leaving. Go for jackets that come in a denim design or you can also opt for the new floral ones.
4. Passport Case
Another item not exclusive to your wardrobe; a passport case not only saves your passport from wear and tear, especially if you’re a frequent traveler, but also adds to your style statement.
Why keep that boring cover that most travelers carry when there’s a variety of passport cases to choose from? Among passport case trends, snake skins cases are most in fashion this year, so you can look into them and other trendy options before you set off on your next trip.
Traveling, especially on long hour flights, is quite tiring and most people prefer comfort over looking good. However, by adding a few small items, you can be at your ease without depriving yourself of the pleasure of looking good.
