The Rolex Learning Center in Lausanne Switzerland completed construction on February 22, 2010. It’s the flagship building for the EPFL Institute of Technology. EPFL held a world-wide architectural competition and selected the Japanese firm SANAA. The organic, curvilinear building looks like nothing I’ve ever seen.
The architects state in the video below that humans move in curves and the architectural form created here follows that concept. They also note that artists and scientists both need to be creative. They have the common task to discover something interesting. If you have a few minutes, watch this fascinating video about this newest Institute of Technology.
In construction, we get to pull from both the artist and the scientist within. Do you strive to discover something interesting? I challenge you to take your day, your week, your year to a higher purpose. Don’t just go through the motions to get a paycheck. Don’t sleepwalk through life to get to death safely.
Strive today to discover something interesting.
