EPFL Campus

The EPFL campus has been built gradually since the late 1960s, and the functional architecture of its beginnings has gradually given way to a bolder and more original architecture.

Over the last twenty years the campus has expanded significantly becoming an authen­tic open-air museum where leading architects such as Sanaa, Kengo Kuma and Dominique Perrault share the space with local architects as Group 8, Richter Dahl Rocha and Itten&Brechbühl.

On this tour we’ll explain you the urbanism of the Campus and the most significant buildings.
