SANAA – Rolex Learning Center, Lausanne

Empty space, free space, fluid space, just space.
An extruded rectangle welcomes light and life with soft curves and slopes excavating the solid shape.
An unconventional volume for students, researchers and visitors.
A manifesto of a different way of experiencing and preserving the scientific culture.
