Learning to construct is the objective of the architecture student, who seeks to bring sketches, sophisticated visualizations, material and component choices, and detailed plans and diagrams together in a single grand composition. This book is an atlas of plans and images of a range of building typologies, reflecting Laboratory EAST’s teaching and research approach within the framework of EPFL’s School of Architecture.

Contemporary Architecture, Education
Plans and Images offers insight into how architects are trained by examining the teaching and research approach of the Laboratory of Elementary Architecture and Studies of Types (EAST), a satellite studio of the EPFL School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering (ENAC) in Lausanne. Going beyond the traditional notion of functionally determined typologies, Laboratory EAST is concerned more broadly with the principles of typology in architecture. Richly illustrated with drawings and plans by Laboratory EAST’s students, the book also includes essays by Antje Bittorf, Tiago P. Borges, Anja Fröhlich, Martin Fröhlich, Rafael Moneo, and Marie Theres Stauffer. An interview with Rafael Moneo, discussing the research topics pursued at Laboratory EAST, and a photo essay by Swiss photographer Joël Tettamantiround out the book.

Tiago P. Borges is an architect, researcher and assistant in the EAST studio at EPFL in Lausanne. Anja Fröhlich teaches as an assistant professor at the architecture department of EPFL in Lausanne, where she and Martin Fröhlich lead the EAST studio of the architecture department. Martin Fröhlich, Assistant professor at EPFL in Lausanne, runs Studio East in the architecture department together with Anja Fröhlich.
Sebastian F. Lippok is an architect and assistant in the EAST studio at EPFL in Lausanne.
