worldhealthorganization WHO headquarters when it was under construction. The foundation stone was laid by the President of the 15th World Health Assembly. At the time, the location is considered as ‘just outside of Geneva’. The construction was ongoing from 1962 to 1966. Jean Tschumi (1904-1962) of Lausanne, Switzerland, was the architect of the building. It is a concrete structure of 150 metres long, 20 metres wide, and 34 metres high supported by 22 columns. #WHA68
