The building’s 10 000 m² for a budget of €20.6 M will welcome a staff of 150 persons and accommodate 2000 students within its varied facilities. As well as several lecture theatres and numerous classrooms, spaces dedicated to innovative teaching techniques will be open up.
Distance-learning and video-conference rooms, as well as collaborative work spaces like study cubicles and project rooms, will optimise the environment for a teaching method that focuses on interactivity and digital tools. The building will also include a cafeteria and relaxation areas to encourage academic serendipity, which is further promoted by the close proximity of the École Polytechnique’s research laboratories.
The aim is to construct a unique building that will accommodate joint teaching programmes shared by higher education and research institutions of the École Polytechnique, the Institut Mines-Télécom, AgroParisTech, ENSTA ParisTech, ENSAE ParisTech and the Institut d’Optique Graduate School (IOGS).
