Cityscapes

are Urban landscapes reflecting our daily environment. They offer endless opportunities for interesting photographic projects, documenting human interaction.

One of my ‘long term projects’ was the documentation of the construction of the EPFL Rolex Learning Center in Lausanne, Switzerland (Scroll down for some images taken during the beginning back in 2008).
Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, partners of the Tokyo-based design firm SANAA, were selected as the lead architects in EPFL’s international competition of December 2004.

The EPFL Rolex Learning Center, a super modern library and learning center, situated on the campus of the Ecole Poly Federale de Lausanne, Switzerland is an outstanding masterpiece of design. Over a period of close to three years, I followed the progress of the construction with my SINAR digital large format camera. In total around 5000 images were shot. A small selection is presented here:
