HSG Learning Center in St. Gallen

Sou Fujimoto 

A rigorously orthogonal grid is used as a composition tool in working out a flexible arrangement of the different programs housed within a center for university-level business studies.

The regular scheme generates cubic modules stacked in a stepped formation that impacts less on the environment, and clad in a glass skin that plays with degrees of transparency and gives them a presence.

Serving no specific purpose, the interiors avoid the educational building’s traditional partitions and open out to an unobstructed atrium where the exposed structure expresses a gridded order.
