The Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne’s campus development project, which began in 2013 with the adoption of an innovative, unique and international architectural approach, has moved forwards in a remarkable manner.
In line with the slogan,“a campus for students, designed by students”, EHL invited the younger generation — closer to the needs and expectations of our future students — to participate in the development of the new campus.
The crowd-sourcing campaign brought together 385 architecture and landscape architecture students. They were offered a creative opportunity that allowed them to push their boundaries – as well as the school’s – to create a more meaningful project respecting the ideas put forward by students while taking into consideration EHL's values.
Today, EHL announced that the projects proposed by the winners — Jon Irigoyen, University of Navarre, Spain; Sofia Passos dos Santos, University of Porto, Portugal; Reiko Wei, Rice school of Architecture, USA; Pauline Jochenbein, HEPIA, Switzerland — will be brought to life.
