Lucerne School of Art and Design
The Lucerne School of Art and Design is one of the oldest and most important educational institutions for design and art in Switzerland and has been part of the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts since 2007. However, the strict design guidelines of the parent Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts did not correspond to the program content of the Design & Art part of the institution. In an elaborate competition process, we won the mandate to develop and implement a flexible institutional design. In the course of a long-term collaboration, we introduced an opening of the design – while consistently adhering to a few central guidelines. The flexible concept can evolve and respond to new trends and content in art and design. The concept was later successfully implemented at the Architecture department as well.
