    SCENARIO

    The first thing he sees when entering the room are stairs that go up. He climbs those stairs and as he arrives at the top, he sees someone already studying at his left. He moves forward on the footbridge and goes towards the next desk. He sits and after looking at the colorful building in the distance, starts working. After a few hours, he stops and gets up to join the bleachers. He lays on it and takes a quick nap. He is woken up by his friend. Together they come down to the common table to discuss their work. After a long talk, they go towards the exit.

    Our space is designed for four people during the study week including three types of spaces:

    - Isolated spaces to work alone 

    - A common space on the outside to rest and relax

    - A common space on the inside to work together  and share

     INTERIOR VS EXTERIOR


    The spaces designed to be alone are giving an impression of interior where you can be self centered and focus on your work whereas the common spaces are on the exterior.

    The main topic we focused on this week was the circulation in our space. So we put a scenario in place: 

    The first thing he sees when entering the room are stairs that go up. He climbs those stairs and as he arrives at the top, he sees someone already studying at his left. He moves forward on the footbridge and goes towards the next desk. He sits and after looking at the colorful building in the distance, starts working. After a few hours, he stops and gets up to join the bleachers. He lays on it and takes a quick nap. He is woken up by his friend. Together they come down to the common table to discuss their work. After a long talk, they go towards the exit. 


    A unique system was used to create all the elements of our study room.

    A second floor is to be added to the model containing four study spots. The second step of the main staircase is wider so it can be used as a common table.

    Looking at the protostructure’s environment, one of the first things that is seen is the crowded Rolex Learning Center. Thinking about the revision periods ahead, we created a space designed for taking in the overload of student during those busy times. 

    Our space was generated around two main characteristics: light and optimization of space.


    LIGHT

    The position of the sun allowed us to determinate the free space between two tables so that they both enjoy as much light as possible.

    OPTIMISATION OF SPACE

    Through a study of the table, we created tables as small as possible but still confortable for working.

    To optimise the stairwell, we designed stairs that can be used as such but also as a resting place.

    WEEK 1


    « A room is an area separated by walls or partitions from other parts of the structure »

    A room is defined by its limits, by its walls. 

    But was happens if those walls are not fixed? The person occupying this space is then free to define the room. These are his choices that create the space. His presence modifies the room for other users as well.

    When moving the walls, the user looses his marks.


    The room can establish a space but it can also become a transition between several spaces. We are headed to the other strong points of the structure but we have to move walls to do so: this journey implies a research. While trying to find a way, the user becomes more aware of time and his own feelings are increased. 


    The walls are composed of verticals modules that formed the table of the double element project. Their transparency increases the disorientation: we can see through them without being able to cross them and it is hard to distinguish their shape. 


    This walls are moving in different directions: they turn and slide but it’s the users job to find out which ones are moving and which ones are fixed.

    He is walking towards the structure and the closer he gets, the higher it seems. When he reaches the stairs, he starts climbing. The steps are high and the ascension is tiring. Finally, he arrives at the first floor on a cramped footbridge. He walks alongside the wall, carefully looking at his feet, and gets to a small space. On the other side of the wall, he spots stairs and restart to climb, until he reaches the third floor. This time, the ascension gets easier but slower. The steps are getting smaller. And the higher he gets, the more frightening the crossing of the footbridge gets, because of its narrowness and the growing space below. At last, he arrives at the very top of the structure and ends his climb.

    The characteristic that interested me the most about my facade in Paris is the impression of verticality that man feels when looking at it. And so I based my whole project on the concept of verticality. Through my drawing, I understood that the main vertical axis is created by the windows. Starting from this, I kept only a section, the width of those windows, and tried to create a space with it. 

    The whole structure is created in order to make feel the effect of this verticality: 

    The cut of the column is meant to emphasise the impression of verticality already created by the vertical section. The stairs are dimensioned to adapt to the different rhythms that compose this verticality. The footbridges are meant to be narrow, so that the person walking on it has to look at its feet and by doing so, sees the growing space below. Lastly, the landings are repeated on the whole column to give this impression to the person looking at the 1:33 model.

    Through research of my facade, I understood that the main elements that give verticality to the facade are the windows. And so I used the width of these elements to create a vertical section on my plus column.

    While exploring my first idea of working on the verticality of the facade by using vertical fragments, I decided to dispose them all around the plus column. I also created footbridges, in order to link all the fragments together. Through the drawing, I have come to realize that my fragments were actually becoming columns when in this disposition and that the intersection of the footbridges was creating a platform. 


    When a person walks in this structure, he experiences a progressive passage. He starts his experience from the outside and then walks between the columns. During that phase, he is in a transitional space, meaning he is not on the outside anymore, yet he is not on the inside either. Finally, he ends his experience by reaching the platform, which is the inside of the structure.

    He is walking in the avenue, thinking about the meeting that is about to happen. Far off, he perceives the stairs. This vision makes him nervous and immerses him into his thoughts. Without even thinking about it, he starts climbing the stairs. Progressively, he begins to see the table that stands on the top. 

    When he finally reaches it, he sits and wait. 

    Suddenly, he sees her. She is coming from a different direction. A few seconds later, she sits at the table, just in front of him, and smiles. Up there, they both feel like nobody can see them. 


    The notion of interior vs exterior

    For me, the key point about those notions of interior and exterior is that they are both very ambiguous. For exemple, when my double element is placed on top of the stairs, it is located on the exterior because there are no walls separating it from the rest of the street. But at the same time, the fact that it is elevated gives an impression of intimacy, which is an important feature of the notion of interior. 


    Planes:

    Starting from the notion of verticality present in my double element, I decided to work with vertical and horizontal sections of my facade in Paris.

    The central idea of our project was to work on the notion of verticality, which we noticed was present on the facades of both sites. To express this verticality, we had the idea of creating a table constituted of vertical elements, in opposition with the horizontality which usually caracterizes the table. 

    Another key notion was the passage. Starting from this point, we made our table modulable: it allows passage in its highest position and provides it when it's down. 

    When outside of the global infrastructure, it takes both the function of a table but it can also become a bench. Both function create an anomaly in the rhythm of the street.
