  • The ‘house of architecture’ is positioned at the heart of the university campus, as a prolongation of the main esplanade. This way, the project becomes part every student’s life on the EPFL campus. Indeed, it is increasingly important that architectural studies turn towards interdisciplinarity.This new prolongation tends to keep the existing qualities in-situ: landscape, sunshine, central gathering point… qualities that aren’t currently fully exploited. By diving towards the green landscape, the project is a transition between the asphalt of the existing square and the green grass on the lower level. In the campus, this chosen zone is where all student fluxes meet and intertwine. With its multiple entrances, Chicxulub catalyze those fluxes. ‘The house of architecture’ is a milieu, articulated by its entrances, focal points of the project, also the structure and source of light enabling a soft in-between space

  • NOTAN OFFICE is a Brussels based architecture and urban design practice. It relies on temporary associations between Frederic Karam and other architects, landscape architects, artists, urban planners, and more technical advisors. The idea is to adapt to every project that demands different knowhows and expertise; relying on this network to reinvent itself through every collaboration, each project taken from scratch, with new inputs for each contexts in attempts to find coherent answers with given budgets, contexts and geographical locations.
