The Architecture of Banking - Visiting Jeffrey Huang's Class at EPFL

Last Friday I was invited to Professor Jeffrey Huang's class on "The Architecture of Banking" to comment on his students' projects at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL). The students explored a variety of different types of banks to match them with suitable concepts of space and architecture. I wrote a full blogpost about the projects that ranged from a "private bank in Second Life" all the way to a "peer-to-peer bank" on arvetica's website.

During this event at the EPFL I also used my new Logitech io Personal Digital Pen more consequently for the first time. It allows me to upload the notes I write into a notebook directly to my laptop. Below you see one of the sketches I made during the students' presentation on the Swiss online bank Swissquote. I briefly outlined the dichotomy between online discount brokerages and physical private banks...

I'm definitely going to use this pen more often. It's amazing!
