Kengo Kuma, pavilions under the same roof in Lausanne (Switzerland)

On the campus of the Swiss Federal Institute of Lausanne (EPFL), close to SANAA’s Rolex learning Center, spreads the Artlab building, a work of Kengo Kuma. Tucked under the long, 235-meter pitched roof are three programss: the Arts & Science Pavilion, the Technology & Information Gallery, and the Montreuz Jazz Café. The stone roof comes from Swiss vernacular architecture, bending here and there like origami figures to address functional requirements of light and shadow. The wooden pillars are sandwiched with perrforated steel plaques on the long facades.
