rolex_epfl_350x250Guided Tour (English) at the EPFL Rolex Learning Centerrolex-epfl

Built on the campus of EPFL Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, The Rolex Learning Center, designed by the internationally acclaimed Japanese architectural practice SANAA, functions as a laboratory for learning, a library with 500 000 volumes and an international cultural hub for the EPFL and is open to both students and the public. Spread over one single fluid space of 20 000 square metres, it provides a seamless network of services, libraries, information gathering, social spaces, spaces to study, restaurants, cafes and beautiful outdoor spaces. It is a highly innovative building, with gentle slopes and terraces, undulating around a series of internal “patios”, with almost invisible supports for its complex curving roof, which required completely new methods of construction.
