A beautiful and unique collection of gramable buildings. A University campus like you've never seen, including a nice restaurant and book store!

There will never be another one like it.

Rolex Learning Center is a multi-function student center on the EPFL campus. A design competition led to the swoopy, gravity defying one-story building designed by Japan-based firm SANAA. While it’s highly photogenic, it’s not very functional and many changes have been made to accommodate student needs and safety concerns.
A better iteration on this flowing concrete design motif can be found on Teshima Island, Japan in an art project - also by SANAA.
If you visit the EPFL campus, you owe it to yourself to stop by and take a look. You’ll not see anything else like it this side of Japan.

A wavy curiosity
Jul 2019 • Friends
Well it was fun to see for 10 minutes. It’s certainly One of the most unique buildings I have been in. That being said, I agree with many other reviews that it’s an architectural experiment gone wrong. There is so much useless space. I am glad I saw it once but I can’t say I’d go out of my way to see it. Weird.

Best view is aerial, building was not designed to be used

Strange place! It looks great if you fly out of Lausanne Blécherette and immediately to the west. Flying over it is nice. From the road, it is interesting. From inside, you could call it an architectural gesture without aim. Students, professors, guests at the restaurant have tried to use it as it was conceived, to no avail. So, in the end, the university had to "cheat" and make the floors level. Not worth a visit and useless in its original form

When architects only think about aesthetics
Apr 2019 • Friends
I think they only considered the aesthetic aspects of the building...not about how convenient it would be. A lot of useless space because of the waved architecture but well looks nice and fancy.

Switzerland is known for its schools, watches and cheese, all embodied in this unique architecture. Only chocolate is missing...

Literally a learning centre
Feb 2019 • Friends
As the name shows, it is literally a learning centre. It is shaped as a Rolex watch (internals) and has some fancy watches inside. Students should go here for study and hang around with friends. Other than that, there is nothing else.

Interesting architecture
Nov 2018 • Couples
A bit outside of Lausanne reachable with the Metro1. Futuristic architecture and possible to walk inside around even when students are working there.

A nice building to inspire you. This is really amazing. The building stands innovatively, looking to the future. The best place to study in Switzerland for sure with an incredible view on the lake
