SANAA, Rolex and Tout s’en va

Visiting SANAA’s amazing Rolex Learning Centre at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne last week, Astragal was astonished by what it saw …

In the warm evening sun students were not only reading, relaxing and sleeping on the colourful beanbags strewn across its undulating floors, but also fornicating.

Perhaps ‘knowledge centre’ would be a more appropriate name for this facility.
