Scope and Content

The project series documents the entry for a competition organised by the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. The firm identified this project as number 187.

“The Learning Center occupies the closest point to the two existing pedestrian accesses and distributes its programme in two large pieces: the green platform which puts in relation the different levels of mobility and houses the active program and the helix which defines the library as a huge ascending space which winds around itself at the interior as well as exterior culminating in an observatory which contains a restaurant. An isolated pavilion emerges over the green platform as a scenic counterpoint. […] Three materials: water, lawn and show form the base of the choice of materials and chromatic proposal supported by a regular structure of white concrete.” (ARCH270975)

Abalos & Herreros and Renata Sentkiewicz worked with Olivia de Oliveira, Blaise Sahy, Verónica Meléndez, Juanju González Castellón, Rubén Briongos and Teresa Galí.

Documenting the project are conceptual, design development and presentation drawings, cartographic, graphic, photographic and reference materials, correspondence, and presentation documents.
