SANAA Debuts Rolex Learning Center in Switzerland

 

Rolex Learning Center EPFL SANAA Switzerland


Europe is fertile ground these days for Kasuyo Sejima + Ryue Nishizawa/SANAA. The Japanese firm’s cloudlike pavilion graced London’s Serpentine Gallery last summer. Their similarly amorphous Rolex Learning Center at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne bowed last month in Switzerland. Its 161,000 square feet of multimedia centers, research facilities, and civic spaces are capped by undulating shells of reinforced concrete, portions of which are cut out with large circular apertures. The center opened February 22.
