Team and collaborations


Our team is totally interdisciplinary. Led by Isabella di Lenardo, art historian and archaeologist by training, it brings together skills in architecture (Irene Bianchi), engineering (Remi Petitpierre and Marion Kramer), modern history (Lucas Rappo) and software development (Zaya Khayankhyarvaa). In addition, we are actively working with our colleagues from EPFL and Unil, both engineers and humanists, to bring the Time Machine initiative to fruition.

Historical Museum of Lausanne

The iconographic database of the Historical Museum of Lausanne contains nearly 62,500 photographs, paintings and prints. The exploitation of this collection within the framework of the Icono Lausanne project should open new perspectives for the valorization of this heritage.

Archives of the City of Lausanne

The Archives of the City of Lausanne are the guardians of historical administrative documents, including the municipal censuses from 1804 onwards, which constitute one of the main historical demographic sources on which we work. We are also studying the city’s film archives as part of the Cineac project.
