The glass tower of the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) sits on the edge of Place des Nations (Nations Square). A flagship of Geneva architecture, the building houses an institution that has greatly contributed to Geneva’s reputation as global centre for intellectual property (inventions, brands, copyrights etc.) The FIPOI has made several loans to the organisation for the construction of the different buildings which make up the headquarters.
