• 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

  • Details.

    The way all is different but everything is bound at the same time and carefully worked.


    A personal relationship between two buildings separated by 500 kilometers : a same structure where everything is modulated.


    But something is breaking the repetitive aspect, something very intense which gives us an impression of generosity...


                                                                  Details in profusion.

    Relation Paris - Lausanne

    •  Haussmann style : a lot of details, every floor is different (which breaks the monotony of the facade), use of stone.


    •  A same structure
      •  ground floor : shops
      •  first floor : mezzanines
      •  Second to fourth floors : appartements

    This corner of the Lausanne facade allows us to see the structure of the building. The stone modulates the facade and cuts it in different parts. Each floor is independant thanks to the diversity of the details.

  • Week 1&2, Inevitable confusion

    Par Mathieu Stutz, Ozan Bakir, 28/09/15


    Study of limits. But which ones? That is not so easy when they become so blurred. When the public joins in the private and when the exterior is believed to be the interior.

  • W1 Monge of Paris and Lausanne

    Par Cedric Nim, Judith Mizutani, 28/09/15

    Lausanne

    Architecture is a way to define space, indeed buildings create boundaries between private and public for instance. This building in Avenue Georgette in Lausanne is a great example of such separation.

    As a matter of fact, in this building public and private spaces are completely juxtaposed without breaking the overall unity. However, those different spaces are clearly marked on the facade where multiple elements define each space.

    Paris

    When Avenue Georgette showed the difference between private and public, Avenue de Sebastopol in Paris is a great example of the opposition between the layers of the city. Indeed, on the surface life thrives but quite unexpectedly it's underground that the city is the most lively.

  • W2 Mesures Avenue Sebastopol

    Par David Perret, Simon Sierro, 28/09/15

    L'espace de Paris et de l'avenue Sébastopol diffère de Lausanne sur un aspect majeur : la taille. En effet Paris reste à son image, grandiose et monumentale. En revanche l'organisation de l'espace reste sensiblement similaire avec la rue Georgette, et l'on retrouve des similitudes dans son organisation des flux.
