Training future architects by giving them a solid polytechnic background is the key role of the Section d’Architecture at EPFL: the Bachelor years forming a common base, the Master phase crowning personal development. Among other things, this supposes that teaching should implant a vision that embraces both the contemporary realities of architecture and its ancient roots. In a polytechnic culture, our discipline should be seen as an art and a craft, to be practiced with intelligence, passion, and experience drawn from many spheres of scientific knowledge.
