• Windows as ways of exposition or protection

    Par Jonathan Fraschini, Jonas Reymondin, 09/10/15


    In our two segments of the Paris and the Lausanne street, we observed that windows can have multiple purposes.

    On our study, we focused on exposition and protection, which we thought was more relevant to the elements of our facades.

    Finally, we noted that multiple elements of our facades showed that windows are used in two ways.

    As for the first floor, the windows were large and at the level of vision of a pedestrian, hence the interior was better suited to public purposes such as shops or agencies.

    Concerning the second floor, the use of multiple elements going in front of the angle of vision a pedestrian could have and the fact that the windows were slightly more inside the facade, showed that it was more suited to private uses like flats or offices.

    With the 1:33 the aim was to study the open/closed concept and to make it visible with a plaster showing the negative of the facade
