Fully accessible to the public, RLC by SANAA is an extraordinary building. An interior landscape where students rest and read, ambiguous spaces- under and peacefull courtyards where one can sit for a drink. Kenzo Kuma building next door not to be missed.

Very nice place to hold a big event, presentations, with catering; very good simultaneous translation in English and French, very professional. theater style sitting makes it easy to follow the presentations, and the screen is huge. Good over all.

One of the most inspiring place to study and to hang-out. The building is award-winning, eco-high-tech design, plus super stylish and comfortable. You can be so relaxing, either sitting by the window with the lake view featuring the Alps and blue sky, or you can...More

This is a student center on a university campus. It has wonderful architecture, and worth a visit for if you are into architecture. It is open to the public and has a library inside.

The learning centre is a library for students, open to the general public who come to view (and take photos) of the unusual architecture. From above (on maps) it looks like a big square with holes in. From the sides, a long, low-lying curve a...More
