    Le programme que nous avons élaboré dans la protostructure est une salle de bains hammam. Le bain traditionnel est convivial et nous proposons ici de transposer la tradition du bain japonais dans l’espace de la protostructure. La pièce est orientée au sud est et grâce à deux grandes ouvertures elle s’inonde de lumière. 

    Afin que les plus timides ne se sentent pas gênés dans une salle de bains avec de telles ouvertures, nous avons marié cette dernière à un hammam, dont la vapeur camoufle l’utilisateur. 

    Le hammam traditionnel comportant plusieurs pièces, nous créons plusieurs plateformes qui forment l’accès aux bains, et qui créent un espace de transition. 

    Nous adaptons les programmes du bain et du hammam traditionnel à une salle de bains familiale dans la protostructure.

  • Twisting space and the implications of circularity.

        As of today, the spatial proposition for Planes has taken the shape of a groin vault rested on its twisted pillars. It was shaped from the double element and the facade from Paris.

  • Planes Process

    Par Nicolas, 23/11/15

        The first exercise we did in this project consisted in placeing our double element twenty five times on the map of our hybrid space (see below). The aim was to understand better how our double element worked with the site.

     Map of our Hybrid space

        After finishing this study, I have decided to repurpose it as a tool to study spaces in relation to my double element and to its placement in the hybrid space. By projecting the edges of the double element on the diagonal axis created by the (+) columns. I was able to find the proportions of an upscaled double element.

        Using those and applying them to "base" spaces, multiple spaces were modeled.

  • A step toward unity

    Par Paulo, Tom, Nicolas, Jonathan, Dana, 09/11/15

    Through the exploration of the variating spaces and surfaces determined by the conception of a modular double-element merging a table with a bed, we were willing to recreate the journey of an individual getting out of it's comfort to confront it's own reality to the external world, formed by an infinity of diverse realities. Acting as a balance between the loss of psychological comfort and the physical comfort it offers, our element leads the individual to finally be able to constantly change it's reality by the acceptance of external contribution.

  • A step toward unity - process

    Par Paulo, Tom, Nicolas, Jonathan, Dana, 09/11/15




    Using the result of the projet MEASURES as a basis, the site we were confronted to for  our new project, even though fictive, symbolized the merging of Paris and Lausanne.  As a starting point, we decided to concentrate on the evolution of one specific individual’s psychological comfort in time as it comes out of the existing and concrete streets of Lausanne and Paris, representing the person’s comfort zone of what he is used to and is confronted to the fictive site and it’s spaces representing everything that is external and unknown to the person.

    From that point, we decided to determine a series of stages which would later lead us to the establishment of  distinct phases for our element illustrating the diminution of one’s psychological comfort and ease proportionally to an enlargement of the surrounding zone of unknown.

    The table being our departure element and willing to materialize the evolution of comfort through a variation of the horizontality, we decided to use the bed to create a modular double-element.

    1:1 element - curve adaptable to the individual 


    Thereby, to ease and encourage the journey out of the comfort zone, the element we would develop would be conceived to offer an increasing physical comfort as the psychological comfort decreases.

    1:1 element - configuration 1

    Phase one: Beginning it’s journey, the individual seats alone in his confort zone and doesn't need a specific support.

    1:1 element - configuration 2

    Phase two: Firstly confronted to the external world, the individual’s stability is disturbed as it realizes the width of all that differs from it’s own way of functioning. To balance with the difficulty now present, an increase of the body’s confort is added, allowing the continuance of the journey.

    Element 1:1 - configuration 3

    Phase three: The individual finds itself alone and changed for the first time, affected by the external world he has been confronted to. It now starts questioning everything it considered as acquired and having reached a state further from it’s confort zone requires a entire support to continue progressing.

    Element 1:1 - final configuration

    Phase four: Now conscious of a new form of reality that englobes an infinity of realities, the individual is finally able to face the external world and by it’s acceptance, can entirely be a part of  it and is no longer in need of an external support.
