This book looks at ArtLab, an innovative facility in Lausanne, Switzerland, intended to bridge the gap between science and the humanities on a university campus.

This superbly illustrated volume presents the ArtLab project, which highlights the intersection of science, art, and the public at the Lausanne Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Switzerland. Designed by the renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, ArtLab is a symbolic place of art, culture, and technology. The project combines three structures: the first is a welcome area to learn about the university's research, the second structure is an exhibition space that hosts art installations, while the third pavilion houses the newly digitized Montreux Jazz Festival archives and a café. The three pavilions are connected, constituting a single building with a folded roof, a topographical flow, and a hybrid steel and wood frame. ArtLab is located near buildings by SANAA and Dominique Perrault, forming a new
heart for the EPFL campus. Kuma's building, originally entitled "Under One Roof," is an example of how innovative, problem-solving, and adaptive architecture is transforming the world.
PHILIP JODIDIO is the author of more than 100 books on art and architecture, including The Aga Khan Historic Cities Programme and Afghanistan: Preserving Historic Heritage (both by Prestel). He lives in Switzerland.
