The Rolex Learning Center on the campus of EPFL in Lausanne was inaugurated in 2010. Designed by the noted Tokyo firm Kazuyo Sejima + Ryue Nishizawa / SANAA, the building has since become one of the most visited works of contemporary architecture in Switzerland.The list of technical challenges inherent in the construction is extensive: its original and complex structure compelled the building engineers to come up with innovative solutions. Based on a selection of the work of eight noted photographers, this generously illustrated volume also explains how the Rolex Learning Center was imagined and how it is used today.
