Professors: Anja & Martin Frรถhlich A collaboration betwenn the CABANON-UNIL and EAST-EPFL laboratory.
Expectations: This partnership have been set up for a temporary, original, innovative pavillon dedicated to art.
Exhibition Barn EAST Laboratory
The Cabanon project
East-EPFL laboratory, witch study with labour notions of housing and habitat, strives to understand how to design and shape a living space. Every year, student from the third year are invited to participe in this exploration the potential of architectural space. For this collaboration, students were invited to think about an art pavillon with reused materials. The objective of this was to respect the site environement, while limiting the impact on the ground. This pavillon should have been remouvable to reconstruct it on an other area. This reflection have ended with an anonymous exibition, where trhity-five students have proposed their variations on this art pavillon. During this same time, an expert jury decided on the most relevant project to build.
Exhibition barn -firt phase:Work in solo second phase: work in group of thrity-five During the first phase, I have elaborated my own project. The main idea was to confornt a massive and solid fondation of bricks with an aerian and openwork metalic structure. In this way, art pieces hanging on the brick wall could have been illuminated by above light. In order to conserve the site, the massive wall would have been made with gardenâ€™s brick, filled with soil and recessed onces into each others. The matalic structure would have been exactly the same as it was on the IOC (International Olympic Committee) roof. During the construction phase, the second one, we have construct with the entire studio (thirty-five students) Djuna Spagnolliâ€™s project. We have casted concret fondations (the parking plot was not horizontal) to drop the metalic structure on it. Then we have put together again metalic pieces, as it was on the IOC roof and we have fixed it on the fondation. After that, we have closed the space with miror pannels, reflecting side on the inside execpt for entrances. Finally we have placed granites slabes on the ground.
Professors: Anja & Martin Fröhlich
The area around the Pfingstweidstrasse in Zurich West has seen significant changes in recent years. With the development of a new public transportation system, the conversion of the former “ToniAreal” into the University of Arts as well as new housing and hotel projects, the former industrial area has changed into a quarter where different functions and programs intermix. As part of the overall strategic vision for the district, the Migros Herdern in Zurich is welcoming a programmatic proposal to reuse parts of its logistic headquarters situated along the Pfingstweidstrasse, which became vacant through recent changes in the logistic processes. Here, in addition to its traditional core business, the Migros envisions to create a public “marketplace” over the next 15 years, offering facilities for dining, retail, culture, education and recreation.
M-Obility EAST Laboratory
M-Obility -Work in duo with Ian BichermeillerWe are offering a building specially suited for car lovers, while still keeping the existing logistics and the restaurant. The first level is the most functional, with shops selling small detail pieces for reparations, and a space where you can wash your car. In the center, we have kept a large empty space ready for any future automobile event or exposition. There is direct access from the street for the public. The public can even access another level where they can test drive the cars and even race. Finally, the intermediate level offers housing for the petrol heads, with some apartments even offering a parking space in the living room.
Expectations: Le Point Vélo of the EPFL
is a garage for minor repairs and a point for selling bikes (new and used) intended to facililate the traffic of bicycles on the campus and encourage students to develop gentle mobility. In the interest of sustainable principle transcription to architectural projects, it comes to prepare -with minimum resources- a pavillon illustrating principles related to sustainable constructions. The approach of the competitors will be focused on research ; the one ensuring the adequacy of the means implemented, of constructive process controlled (demolition, the creative use of materials, low cost energy process, ...). This competition could give students the opportunity to create a project with a conceptual vision but also develop it in a more pratical way (constructive reality).
Let’s Go for a Ride LAST Laboratory
“Sustainable is beautiful”
Let’s go for a ride: -Work in duo with Benjamin LampsLe point vélo is a space dedicated to selling bikes. The space was created, using a very small budget, by a team made up of qualified architects and mechanical engineers. Keeping in mind the idea of “sustainable is beautiful”, we decided, to first use a site that is inside the building, and then move to another site in EPFL. This is why we used a metallic structure easy to assemble and take apart. This structure has no anchor points to the ground; this way the site used has no lasting traces of the project being there, and thus can be used for another project. To limit any repercussions on the environment, but also to take advantage of the location, the project is placed on an already paved plot. This way, the pedestrians are not disturbed. This pedestrian flow dialogs with the two main facades that communicate thanks to the shape of the building. The L shape brings two spaces, one more open on the square, the second more closed to the building. The proximity inbetween bicycle reparations and professional repairs is accentuated by a partition which can be lifted to provide shelter for students repairing their bikes. The building follows a module of a bicycle, which means 55 by 55 cm. It defines the structural grid which can accommodate the bikes, 220 by 220 cm. There are different work benches with varying heights depending on their use. Work benches are 110 cm high, and hooks are 165 cm.
Plan des murs
Plan du sol
Professors: Alexandre Blanc & Marco Bakker Expectations: MANSLAB proposes to conceptualise a tower using reused materials onto he lake bassin in Dorigny, Switzerland. The development of the city in a 2000 watt town assumes that the architect understands the process of construction with disposable materials and ressources. This also involves a reflection on sustainable development with typology and morphology. It is also important to keep in mind to societal preference for long-lasting constructions. The limited ressources, an implicit systeme of sustainable developpement, seems to run completely contrary to the nature of a tower, which needed a priori lot of quantity. The effort will be focussed on this contradiction which must spark poetic, innovative and relevant solutions.
The Drunkenness of the Knowledge MANSLAB Laboratory
The drunkenness of the knowledge: -Work in trio: Charlotte Astaes & Sophie Bastiannuti A lighthouse: Symbolising a lighthouse of knowledge, the tower marks the presence of EPFL and UNIL. The effervescence of creation. The caretaker is its only inhabitant. He watches over everything and protects the wonders of the tower. The loud and solemn sound created by the foghorn, placed atop the tower, announces a new discovery to the whole region. A skin: A smooth exterior, an irregular interior. Fragile bottles, translucent and taken for prisoner by the robust, opaque concrete. The light infiltrates delicately into the exhibition rooms. In the double skin the bottles are one in front of each other, we can touch them and feel their smoothness, the irregularity of the shape. Circulation seems to be the intruder in between these two layers, to separate as much as possible. The skin embraces each level, with very rare interruptions, only a few openings and arrowslit windows allows you to get your bearings. The attention is concentrated on the inside, for the outside you must wait. Wait for the terrace atop the tower where the visitor can contemplate the beauty of the Alpes and the Lac LĂŠman. Stairs: Different lengths, distinct volumes and heights. Each floor has its own atmosphere, its own character. The section defines it, the function is not defined. Reusing the dimensions from the modules, the steps lock into the concrete and glass bottles blocks, thus connecting the walls.
Professor: Nicola Braghieri Expectations: Representation is not only a tool to benefit the project. This is a complex process which begins at first with the conception of an idea, then passes through the step of natural production and finally defines its concrete shape and gives its symbolic significance.
Invitation to Intrusion ARCHIVE OF THE IMAGINATION Laboratory
BACHELOR 4 & 5
Digital, Representative and Expressive Figuration:
Each image is an allegory of the idea, communicating a meaning beyond a simple image reproduced on an underlying layer. It opens on a reflection about the nature of things and fills the gap between the world of ideas and the material. Drawing, painting, photography, models and graphics are a true expression way and making abstraction of the technique applied. It is telling a story and communicating ideas. These modalities of conception become educational tools to form a personal creative process or to define a method of transferable representation. The knowledge of purpose and the control of graphic conventions are essential to transmit and to share what has been acquired in every individual universe.
Invitation to intrusion: La casa per lo sciatore Gentinetta (Alberto Sartoris) -Work in duo with Djuna Spagnolli-
After having redrawn the Alberto Sartoris’ project, the interest was focused on the relationship between interior and exterior in this villa. The house proposed by the architect is composed of very large refined volumes; a style which offers high concrete walls, orthogonal angles and partitions drilled by numerous openings and picture windows. This openness added to a terrace allows users to enjoy the impressive landscape of Chexbres, Lavaux in Switzerland. A new gaze, from indoors to outdoors is then discovered. However its could also happen in the opposite direction – form the exterior to the interior –. In the image, we wanted to enhance the possibility of having an intruder – located on the terrace – looking at the everyday life of inhabitants without their knowledge. This is facilitated by not adding protection to aid the intrusion.
ECAL + EPFL LAB
DESIGN 2017 31
Publication: Professor: Gael Faure
Expectations: For this semester, students needed to choose an association in the EPFL and make a publication for it . The publication must have been a sophisticated mixed with texte and images/ representations. It also had to respect very prescise rules to have an extremely clear reading.
Echec et mat: -Work with Benjamin Lamps, Marie-Christine Berris et Antone FurajkinThe first step was to decide about wich association we realy wanted to deal with. We have decided to deal with the chess Association â€œLa Dame Blancheâ€?. From speaking to people of this association we realized that there were no book showind differents play from various player. We have opted for a month publication wih the best game that have marked the history. In the end of the year this monthly article could been collected to make a bigger publication also with interviews this time. For that we decided to make our own pawns pictured with a triangulation colored system.
Illustrations and Poster: ANTOPHOBIE
Professor: Gael Faure
Expectations: The theme drawn lots during the first week will determine a direction to create a collection. This collection will have for objective the creation of a library of homogeneous graphic signs which will be worked until the realization of a thematic poster.
-Work in duo with Charlotte Astaes-
We worked on the theme of phobia. We decided to work with the fear of flowers, antophobia. As every flowers has been eradicated from the earth; we decided to present, as a page coming from the encyclopedia, the most beautiful one.
16 15 14
We decided to work with a light, delicate and sophisticated technique; the technique of points to represent the beauty of it.

Corporate design: Professor: Gael Faure Expectations: On the basis of a given theme, the project will consist of developing the various elements of a visual identity by producing pictures and graphic signs by adapting them to the sizes(formats) appropriate to the corporate communication.
Hypnotic: -Work in trio: Agathe Loeb & Timothe BeuretWe decided to handle an event dedicated to sleep; â€œthe week of the sleepâ€? located in the Rolex Learning Center. We made flyers to invite people to come. We also produced explanatory posters displayed in different areas where people could stop and sleep. For this, we used the Greek alphabet representing the various types of nap, and different frequencies of sleeping. We used a visual representation to provide a sense of hypnosis to make reference to sleep.
