Switzerland. Geneva. The Palais Wilson. A blue TPG bus and cars. The Palais Wilson is the current headquarters of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. It was also the headquarters of the League of Nations from 1 November 1920 until that body moved its premises to the Palais des Nations on 17 February 1936, which was constructed between 1929 and 1938, also in Geneva. It is named after U.S. President Woodrow Wilson, who was instrumental to the foundation of the League of Nations. The building, located on the western side of Lake Geneva, is one of the most prominent on the waterfront. The building’s roof was renovated by the company Cerutti Toitures SA. 26.03.2014 © 2014 Didier Ruef
