Art

The Zurich Development Center was conceived around the notion of people. It is a place where people come together, to learn, to experiment, to work and to communicate, both individually and as groups. In keeping with this notion, we have put together an international art collection that represents the reality of the human being in all of its facets. The motto "Zurich is People" has been interpreted by various artists: people from the focus of all the works on display.

You can get a brochure of our current art collection at reception.
