The Architecture of Swiss Cheese: Rolex Learning Centre by SANAA

The Rolex Learning Centre (“EPFL Learning Centre”), designed by the winners of 2010 Pritzker Prize, Japanese-duo SANAA, is a university hub and study center in Lausanne, Switzerland. The space, which opened in 2012 to both students and the public, houses a library, student work spaces, offices, a restaurant, and a café spread out over 215,000 square feet on one open, rolling level. Bearing an uncanny resemblance to a slice of Swiss cheese, its rectangular form is punctuated by a dozen or so variously-sized holes, or patios. The patios bring daylight to all areas of the building, and the larger ones serve as entrances where their sloping forms touch the ground. Notably, the concrete—in some areas almost 3 feet thick—was poured over a precise formwork of sloping geometries created from 1,400 individual molds.

ICD/ITKE Research Pavilion 2014-15 at the University of Stuttgart Institute for Computational Design (ICD)

The ICD/ITKE Research Pavilion 2014-15 demonstrates the architectural potential of a novel building method inspired by the underwater nest construction of the water spider. Through a novel robotic fabrication process an initially flexible pneumatic formwork is gradually stiffened by reinforcing it with carbon fibers from the inside. The resulting lightweight fiber composite shell forms a pavilion with unique architectural qualities, while at the same time being a highly material-efficient structure.

7-Mile man is building an earth shelter home

After a day of monitoring teleconferencing courses at WSU’s Spokane campus, Mike Bergam goes home to work on his 7-Mile soon-to-be earth shelter home.

It started as a kit from a Colorado-based company, Formworks Building, Inc. This weekend, he’ll be completing the shell of the home.

“It’s going to be a house. The bottom side will have a shop garage, but the top side will be for living,” Bergam said. He added: “I’m a do-it-yourselfer.”
