Media and Design Laboratory LDM
We explore the vision of bringing physical and virtual environments together, by designing, making, prototyping and testing new artifacts, systems, spaces and experiences.Located between the School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering (ENAC), and the School of Computer and Communication Science (I&C).
Imagined as an ever-shifting spatial interface revealing the innermost dreams of an artificial machine pre-occupied by possible resilient futures of the Swiss refuge, “Design Brain” is a showcase of the outcome in the design research studio conducted at EPFL with master students in Spring 2020 called Refuge 2.0 – Artificial Swissness. In the studio, machine (…)

Artificial Zürichness – Final Review
Throughout the semester we reflected on what characterizes Zürich, what is Zürichness and if arriving at this solution through machine learning (and Generative Adversarial Networks – GANs) makes the result artificial. Does artificial intelligence create artificial architecture? In the final review, the individual projects resulting from the study were reviewed by a jury composed of (…)
