LAUSANNE | Architectural projects

Here is some news from Lausanne (Switzerland).

SSC Lausanne Photos Thread

SSC Picture of Lausanne's evolution Thread


Presentation
Quote:
Lausanne, the lively capital of the canton of Vaud, is picturesquely situated on the north shore of Lake Geneva, on terraces rising above the lake which are broken by gorges. It ranks with Geneva as a focus of intellectual life in French-speaking Switzerland (Federal Court, University, College of Technology, Hotel School and many other technical colleges), and is also a popular convention and conference center and the venue of important trade fairs (Comptoir Suisse in Autumn, International Tourism Fair in March). Major elements in the town's economy are the foodstuffs industries and vine-growing. The headquarters of the International Olympic Committee are located in Lausanne – the IOC officially recognizes the city as the Capitale Olympique – as are the headquarters of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (and many international sportive federation). The city has a 28-station metro system, making it the smallest city in the world to have a rapid transit system.

In the attractive townscape of Lausanne the modern office blocks and the high-level bridges spanning the gorges (now built over) of the Rivers Flon and Louve form a striking contrast to the narrow lanes and steep flights of steps which run up to the old town (Cité), dominated by the cathedral (530 m/1,739ft) and the Château, while to the south pleasant residential districts extend down to the port of Ouchy (380 m/1,247ft).

There was a Celtic settlement at the mouth of the River Flon which later became the Roman Lousonium or Lousonna. After the destruction of this town by the Alemanni about 379 a fortified settlement was built on the hill now occupied by the Cité, and after that the transfer of the episcopal see from Avanches to Lausanne (ca. 590) this became a town of some size which, like Geneva, belonged successively to the Burgundians, the Franks and the second Burgundian Kingdom before becoming part of the Holy Roman Empire in 1033. In the 15th C. the Vaud region was conquered by the Bernese, who soon introduced the Reformed faith. In 1798, however, Vaud recovered its independence as the République Lémanique, and in 1803 it became the 19th canton to join the Swiss Confederation.

BUSSIGNY-PRèS-LAUSANNE - Ex-Veillon [16 floor]
by the Massimilano Fuksas buro's architects. This one half billion CHF project must still be legalized by authorities. This project is situated on a strategic city development area, a federal funding for a new tram line depends on the densification of the sector.

Renovation of the oldest tower of Switzerland, the Bel-Air Métropole Tower in Lausanne (inauguration: 1932, 78m high). The building has never been renovated.

Here is the project adopted. The project will be done without extending the 2 nd and 3 rd level. The connections between the Rue des Terreaux and Rue de Genève will be enhanced, thus approaching the Flon quarter of one of Bel-Air. Retail space will be created. The courtyard will be vegetated and rethought.

Cantonal Museum of Beaux Arts in Lausanne

by EBV from Barcelona (Spain).

The project will be built in the old hall of locomotives, now abandoned. The site is located near the main train station in Lausanne, and will be completed by the arrival of other museums to form a cluster of museums in the city.

Some really amazing projects are being shown here. Lausanne seems to be defenitely worth a visit. I've only seen it from my car driving down the A5(?) I think. I've been to Geneva and I'll be staying in that region at the end of july. How far is it by train from Geneva?

Just half an hour-to-40 minutes, depending on the train you use. You can check in here: SBB-CFF I hope you can come to Lausanne with your camera and take some of your fantastic pictures

Well, actually I'm staying in d'Haute Savoie, Eastern France. It's just really close to the border. The town is called Seyssel d'Ain, the Rhône runs through it. It has a train station and it's connected to Geneva which is only 40km by car. I used to go there when I was a kid, this year going back there after 4 years. Wondering what has changed. Friends of my parents own a campsite over there

I'm starting my holidays in South Germany at the Bodensee. It's like 10km from the Swiss border. Excited to visit Zürich!

Yes! Zürich is the bigger city of switzerland. Zurich is reputed for shopping, night parties, business, very good infrastructure, and many cultural manifestation. You will not get bored. But honestly it's also (for me) the least charming of the five major Swiss city…

BUSSIGNY-PRÈS-LAUSANNE / CRISSIER | Boulevard de l'Arc-en-ciel



Actually, this is an anarchic industrial disaffected area, where cross the A1 and A5 motorway, and a major Lausanne access.

image hosted on flickr

This area will be redefined in boulevard, which will host 20,000 inhabitants (workers + population). 6 landmark buildings will be built along the boulevard


Here are the first photomontages of one of the landmark building, located at 31 avenue de Bussigny in Crissier (ex Filtrona factory):

For the update construction sites (and many other interesting topics), go directly to the topic concerned, in the Swiss section (Lausanne subforum). If you do not speak French, you have the option of using an summary in image of different projects, with the direct link on the subject (here). Do not hesitate to ask sth in English in the Swiss section.

The stadium is included in the "Metamorphosis project", approved by the voting population in 2010. It will be at near the lake (Vidy) and the curves of the future stadium will be unveiled in fall 2011. I will post here some picture of this project. Inauguration: 2015.

Tower Beaulieu good chance to be, but not yet played. At the beginning of the year in the press, the municipality was still hoping to start on site in autumn 2012 and the tower opened in 2014. The tower will be built almost certainly, the planing is most likely not be required. It is not located in the park but rather a part of the old entrance ("Jomini Front").
