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.
Your advice on indecisiveness: I wish someone gave me this kind of advice decade ago :( (Cher's If I could turn back time starts playing). Regardless, I was recently reading some article about Kazuyo Sejima from SANNA and there was this bit about her really disliking this exclusivity/presumptuous aura around architects in western world. What are your thoughts on that issue?
Before I comment I would like to know the context of the comment, it would be unfair of me to give my opinion otherwise. Can you provide a link to the interview?
