EPFL, 3 April 2014
The SwissTech Convention Center,
which opened today, is one of the most modern and best equipped
conference centers in the world. With this new tool that makes it
possible to organize the most ambitious meetings, EPFL reaffirms
its strong position at the heart of Europe’s scientific community.
Funded by two Credit Suisse real estate funds, the building and the
Northern Quarter in which it stands were planned and carried out by HRS
Real Estate SA according to plans by the architectural
firm Richter Dahl Rocha & Associés SA in Lausanne. In a world
first, a solar photovoltaic facade composed of “Grätzel cells” has been
installed with the support of Romande Energie.
