Health Campus Lausanne, suisse

Health Campus

The urban planning part of the competition consists in designing a campus including 10 buildings and two underground parking lots, totaling 1.35M SF and to be built in two phases. Our urban proposal is a very large built entity capable of generating a public space of critical size: not a very large building but rather a very large urban form connected to the greater landscape and to the infrastructural and productive entities of the city.

 The architectural design part of the competition in Phase 2 consists in developing over 530,000 SF of university programs, including two educational facilities for a new medical school and 500 student housing units. Our project creates a typology associating a large raised volume supported by smaller ones, orchestrating the transition between two topographic levels. The programs develop along a large interior street opening on one side on the new park and on the other on a water landscape. A large scale natural ventilation scheme allows to maintain a temperate climate in all the public spaces thanks to a series of devices located on the roof and facades.
