Appreciation towards A&F architectes for providing the following description:

建筑事务所A&F architectes为HEIG-VD(沃州工程与管理大学)的工程管理高中设计了新入口。建筑师Aouabed和Figuccio提出了一个设计策略:建造一个由单片墙体所限定出的建筑体量,以期在赋予学校视觉识别性的同时,重新组织其公共空间。

The new entrance to the HEIG-VD in Yverdons-les-Bains designed by A&F architectes. The strategy of the architects Aouabed & Figuccio to build a single wall as an architectural synthesis to create a visual identity and reconfigure the public spaces of the school.

– 在学校内创建一个高辨识度的行人入口空间;
– 激发学校内闲置露台空间的活力,并将其整合到入口空间中去;
– 创建一个在公共空间中具有较高可见度的标识系统;
– 通过材料的选择来反映学校教学的具体内容;
– 为人们提供一个具有空间序列感的独特的聚会场所。

The project proposes to use an architectural sculpture to create the main entrance of the school, which so far is not identifiable. The objectives are as follows:

– Establish a main pedestrian entrance to the school, clearly identifiable.
– Activate the unused terraces of the school to integrate them into the entrance route.
– Integrate signage that is visible from public space.
– Reflect the particular questions taught within the school, through the choices of materialization
– Create a unique meeting place, a spatial sequence allowing users to meet and meet there.

By extending the curve of the existing building, the intervention generates both an entrance pavilion in the axis leading to the main courtyard of the school, an outdoor foyer for the Aula, as well as a monumental façade, which delimits clearly the school grounds and asserts its identity.

The system is functional because it makes it possible to enhance unused terraces to qualitatively change their status and create new routes. The wall is made of concrete poured on site, like the existing building. The upper part is made up of a multitude of caissons or material pixels, which refer to the structure of the building and allow HEIG-VD to be registered using stained glass. On the other hand, the curve and the shape of the boxes refer to one of the oldest uses of concrete from Roman antiquity, and thus directly addresses one of the research activities within the school.

Opposite the front door is the ideal vantage point for reading the anamorphosis, a blue disc framed in the square door. This form visible from a single point of view, replay the architectural gesture of the entrance, which extends the circle of the Aula. This sculpture / painting uses perspective and fragments according to the movement of the user, offering the entrance space a possibility of somewhere else.
