EPFL - Espace et pavillions sur place CosandeyEdit profile
The project site is a vast lawn, a void in the middle of the EPFL campus. It disconnects the North side of the campus (where the Esplanade plaza, social heart of the campus, and the tram station are) from the students’ residential area on the South. Also it separates the dense West part of the campus with the currently evolving East side that is articulated around the impressive presence of the Learning Center.
By transforming the site into a place where students, professors and visitors will pleasantly pass by every day enjoying the new cultural activities that will take place under this roof, we are confident that this whole area will become a central hub within the campus and will bring a more social and cultural dimension to the EPFL.
