Institut des Sourdes-Muettes information
The little silver-plated cupola of the Deaf and Dumb Institute has reigned over the Plateau since 1900. An earlier building was built on clay, a problem typical to the area, and the soft ground gave way. The architects didn’t take any chances the second time around and the newer version sits on 1700 stakes and a concrete slab 60cm deep. The building still houses a private communications institute for the deaf, along with other offices.
