  • The Rolex Learning Center, designed by the Japanese architectural office of world-renowned SANAA, is both a learning laboratory, a library with 500,000 books and an international cultural centre. It is open to both students and the public. On a continuous surface of 20,000 m2, it offers services, libraries, centres of information, social spaces, places of study, restaurants, cafes and beautiful outside. The building is extremely innovative, with gentle slopes and terraces undulating around 'patios' domestic. Not to mention the almost invisible pillars that support the roof curve, a structure that required new construction methods. Called Rolex Forum, conference and performance space has a capacity of 600 seats, arranged around a circular removable scene of 70 m2. Equipped with all current technologies, a locker room and a dressing room, the Rolex Forum can be booked every day of the year.

  • Difficult to understand why, at the time of the urban densification, such a building was born. Although architecturally interesting, it's absurd to waste as much surface... In addition, officially announced as building welcoming the new EPFL library, there are also a restaurant and a cafeteria, unless the spaces are separated. Students must therefore work in the noise of glasses and forks.

  • The building mimic the landscape of Lausanne, hills that ups and downs. The building also want to use hill to divid the different sections without using walls. Visitors can have a very nice walk in Rolex learning Center.
  • Excellent architecture. Awesome. Very big
  • Breathtaking. I can't forget the movie the architects Ms. Sejima and Mr. Nishizawa was have fun riding the segway in this courtyard.
  • Surprising building. They have a library and cafe. Worth the visit
  • Nice contemporary organic architecture. Contain a public library, some work and rest spaces and a cafeteria. Can be full usually before the exam periods.
