“Interesting building, not much to do”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

It's a cool building, though the landscaping is hideous. There's really no excuse, since I moved here three years ago they STILL haven't landscaped it. There are a couple restaraunts, one of which is quite nice, and a bookstore, but this is really geared as a student center and not a tourist activity hotspot.

“Amazing Architecture”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

The Rolex Learning Center (RLC) is a swiss-cheese shaped building near St. Sulpice, west of Lausanne.

The RLC serves as a place of meeting and study at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), a world-renowned engineering and research university. You'll find the library here, a bookstore and several places to eat. You'll see tourists from time to time simply taking pictures of the building and its unique architecture!

No skiing allowed.
