Crowd-sourcing: At the heart of EHL’s campus development

Written by

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.
