Barely five weeks after the opening of the Rolex Learning Center, the verdict fell - the building's architects, Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa (SAANA) were announced the winners of the 2010 Pritzker Prize, the most prestigious prize in architecture. The jury celebrated an ..". architecture that is simultaneously delicate and powerful, precise and fluid, ingenious but not overly or overtly clever; for the creation of buildings that successfully interact with their contexts and the activities they contain, creating a sense of fullness and experiential richness." At the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), the Japanese architects' unique procedure allowed for a dream to become a reality by creating what one might call the first "enhanced library." A building, a new heart for the campus, that gathers together all the different forms of knowledge access and exchange in one open space. A place for life as well, where a new rapport between the exterior and the interior is established."
