The main elements creating the image and the ambience of the building are made of wood: the facade and roof of the exhibition hall, the facade and structure of the ice rink/theatre. The covering over the facade of the exhibition space is made of several vertical bands of shiplap planks of rough-sawn larch. This appropriation of a common detail of rural architecture forms the continuity of the covering. The alternating of the direction in which the planks overlap plays with the light to make these vast, shaded spaces resonate.

In order to create a lightweight public building, the project combines the qualities of wood and glass: inside, wood and polycarbonate define the smooth, standardised volume of a sports hall. Here the play area is in a bright, introverted space entirely its own. Outside, the glass casing covers all the faces of the volume. This protective membrane detaches itself from the internal envelope by embracing the shape of the wooden frame. The resultant space is at the heart of the energy concept. 05 Section through the gymnasium and the multifunctional rooms 0 10m Section through the multifunctional room and east elevation 56 Entrance level 57 58 Facade sectional detail 0 1m Phoniatrics and logopedics unit, Chuv Lausanne (vd), 2000–2004 Situated in a very restricting environment (high-voltage line, buildings opposite, ventilation from the electrical sub-station) the project proposes the installation of a micro-perforated metal sheet redefining the relationships between the building and its immediate surroundings.
