Moreau Kusunoki : Polytech Annecy-Chambéry

The future engineers of Savoie officiate now in a new school. Designed by the architect duo Moreau Kusunoki, Polytech Annecy-Chambéry combines several refined white volumes, creating an intimate and elegant campus.

The building - of which 3 square meters (surface area) are spread over three levels - is made up of four parallelepipedal volumes linked together by interior streets and common walkways in raw concrete. Each of the blocks corresponds to a use: administration, student life, teaching and research center.


The main objective was to meet the technical and environmental performance that an engineering school of this renown can expect. Thus, the project managers imagine a building with high inertia incorporating Trombe walls in reinforced concrete, seizing the heat of the day in order to restore it at night. Added to this, an ETFE glass roof, educational solar panels and a green roof allow the whole to save 20% of energy compared to the RT2012 standard of the “Grenelle Environnement 2012” thermal regulations for buildings.

Sober, the school is wrapped frosted glass walls deliberately revealing technical elements such as lighting, acoustic absorbents or ventilation, give the place a manufacturing aspect.

A responsible realization while simplicity.

The project is selected for the ADC Awards 2019 in the category Education / Higher
