Flux Cocoon for Lausanne Lumieres (Urban Light Festival) / Allegory

© Laura Rimayati

Designed for Lumieres (Urban Light Festival), Flux Cocoon was selected as one of the winning projects of the the city’s first Light Festival, which inaugurated on November 23rd and will run until early January. Designed by Allegory, the project was installed in the heart of the city and was inspired by its location at the crossing between vertical and horizontal pedestrian movements (flux). The project is also an abstraction of the knot created by the crossing of each pedestrian’s path at this precise point in the Flon area, which is city’s major transportation hub.

Wine Museum Proposal / Mauro Turin Architectes

The main challenge in the design for the Wine Museum in was to generate a large-scale cultural attraction non-existent today. Designed by Mauro Turin Architectes, their proposal creates a wine museum that shows and tells the whole heritage richness of the wine-growing area since the Middle Ages seams relevant, but not sufficient to attract people from around the world. The museum wants to be a small iconic object in a great iconic landscape; without being in competition but rather feeding each other. More images and architects’ description after the break.

EPFL Campus Competition Entry / HHF + AWP

HHF and AWP shared with us their proposal for the EPFL Campus in Lausanne, . The three pavilions, with a surface area of over 3’000 m2, or about one third of place Cosandey, which is the main open space, have very different potentials of interaction with their surroundings. A vertical organization of the three programs not only minimizes the use of the limited campus surface, but makes use of the specific way that each pavilion interacts with the campus.
