Here you can know more about our campus.
Built on the campus of EPFL, The Rolex Learning Center, is designed by the internationally acclaimed Japanese architectural practice, SANAA. It spreads over one single fluid space of 20,000 sq meters and functions as a laboratory for learning, a library with 500,000 volumes and an international cultural hub for EPFL. It is a highly innovative building with gentle slopes and terraces, undulating around a series of internal patios, with almost invisible supports for its complex curving roof. It breathes fresh alpine air feed by the nearby plains and the Lake Geneva.
The new EPFL building, MED, is the home of important state of the art laboratories in robotics, including the Biorobotics laboratory (Prof. Auke J. Ijspeert), Laboratory of Intelligent Systems (Prof. Dario Floreano) and Reconfigurable Robotics Laboratory (Prof. Jamie Paik). The building, serves as large-scale experimental playground and laboratory for research scientists.
