Campus RTS – Construire les médias de demain

12 – 30 mai 2015

Bureau d’architecture Kersten Geers David Van Severen, Bruxelles

Venez découvrir la préfiguration architecturale et sociale du Campus RTS, à 2 ans de la pose de sa première pierre et à 4 ans de son ouverture.

La dimension architecturale de cette nouvelle construction est alimentée par un grand projet d’entreprise de la RTS. Qu’est-ce qui oriente cette architecture ? Comment la RTS réanalyse-t-elle ses modes d’organisation à l’occasion de sa nouvelle implantation dans un campus universitaire ? Comment deux producteurs et diffuseurs de savoirs, l’université et les médias nationaux, vont-ils cohabiter et collaborer ?

Exposition de la maquette et des plans du projet lauréat du concours d’architecture.

A field of opportunities, organised by precise production machinery.The new building for the RTS is positioned in the heart of the double campus of EPFL and UNIL. It will function as a ‘hinge’ between the two campuses, as well as between fields of eduction and research, and between classical broadcasting and contemporary media.The project consists of four separate volumes, supporting a disc-like volume suspended 7 meters above ground.
The volumes include a television studio, a radio studio, a media library and the RTS’s administration, while the suspended volume contains the different redactions and broadcast studios, organised as a ‘field’ of landscape offices. On the ground floor, a glass wall connecting the 4 supporting volumes create a public foyer, connecting the different entrances of the RTS.
The redactions, heart of the production of RTS, are conceived as a field, lighted from above by the industrial-like shed roof. The protruding volumes, the major supporting beams, as well as a system of patio’s organise its contents, creating more or less separate zones within the field. The field is a ‘chipboard’, allowing for various and unlimited ways of collaboration between the different redactions, endlessly adaptable to the ever-changing world of media.
