    La densité de population sur les parcelles de Lausanne et de Paris est différente.

    A Lausanne, étude du premier étage de la façade (échelle humaine). Observation d'une différence de densité entre la partie de la façade occupée par le centre de fitness, fermée et dont le passage est restreint (partie gauche de la façade) et la zone limitée par la vitrine de la boucherie et l'arrêt de bus, où le passage est plus dense


    A Paris, étude d'une surface plane, sur laquelle on observe une densité de population bien plus grande qu'à Lausanne. Etude du sous-sol, avec le passage régulier de deux lignes de métro, explication rationnelle à ce flux élevé. 

    Liaison de Lausanne à Paris à travers les moyens de transports publiques, le bus et le métro, symbole à l'échelle humaine de cette différence de densité.

    "Steps" est la création d'un cycle artificiel qui exprime le chemin entre Lausanne et Paris, qui confronte deux rythmes de vie différents.

    A travers ce projet, nous comprenons la manière d'aménager les espaces dédiés aux hommes. 
















  • enclosure within continuity

    Par Enea, Dana, Alex O, 12/10/15

    The contrast between verticality, horizontality, interiority and exteriority was apparent throughout the measurement process of both Lausanne and Paris. Our concept was to merge these contrasts using recurring curves in the most complete way possible.

  • Promenade Architecturale

    Par Mathilde, Maria, 11/10/15

    What is our main area of study? Having no buildings in our parcel, urged us to pay close attention to the movement and interaction between pedestrians and their surroundings.  



    Image Fri Nov 13 2015 23:11:10 GMT+0100 (CET)


    Study and Monge of the site in Lausanne: At this stage, a relationship between man and the things around him becomes apparent. In an attempt to explore the idea of proportions we found out about the Modulor Man and the Universal System of proportions. As demonstrated by our studies, there is indeed a direct relationship between the size and position of objects from handles to traffic lights. 







    Image Fri Nov 13 2015 23:11:10 GMT+0100 (CET)


    Study and Monge of the site in Paris: A park in our parcel's facade in Paris in combination with a downward elevation from Lausanne, Avenue du Thêatre, spiked the idea of a downward walk from Lausanne to Paris. 




    Image Fri Nov 13 2015 23:11:10 GMT+0100 (CET)


    Concept of walk: What if the size of the things around us (as explored) is meant to affect us? We went to the actual site in Lausanne and followed a significant number of passengers. It is clear that the setting of everything (trees, poles, advertisements,colonnes) is what indirectly defines the route of the pedestrians. On our drawing of the walk, above, we decided to catch certain moments. Then, by drawing the plan we conveyed the route of the passengers. The most common as expected, was the straight route aside the colonnes. There were however some exceptions also drawn on the plan.

    Model of Lausanne(above): Inspired by the capture of different moments during the walk we decided to demonstrate the negative space surrounding a pedestrian while a bus is approaching from the opposite direction. It was a first attempt to examine the curiosity of a pedestrian. Unfortunately though, it seems that in reality the busy pedestrians pay no real attention to what is happening around them.



    Theme exploration: The theory of the "Situationist" by Debord and the "Flâneur" felt ideal to simultaneously explore. We thought that the pedestrians were merely carried away by their routines. As said by Debord "All that once was directly lived has become mere representation.". There is an obvious diminishment of the citizens' critical thoughts like the one in the analysis of Debord's "Spectacular Society". At the same time the study of flânerie described by Honoré de Balzac as "the gastronomy of the eye" was what was missing by our society. Therefore, we as explorers, decided to take the role of the Situationist and the Flâneur by questioning and closely investigating things.

    Hybrid Model of the walk from Lausanne to Paris: As a result of our studies we decided to demonstrate the idea of an explorer on our hybrid model. We elongated the advertisement which was in Lausanne towards Paris. In this way we provoked the observer to realise that small things like this may have an effect in his reality.

    Image Fri Nov 13 2015 23:11:10 GMT+0100 (CET)



    Perspective drawings: By drawing the route of the walk in perspective, we further comprehended the fact that the position of each object in our way is what directs us towards a certain path.

  • Decrypting the concept of continuity

    Continuité définition d'après le Dictionnaire d'esthétique:

        Lat. Continuus, Continuitas, qui référaient soit à continere (tenir ensemble) soit à continuare (suivre immédiatement).     Ce qui est continu, soit dans l'espace, soit dans le temps, se prolonge sans coupure, sans interruption.

                                                                                         _

    Continuity definition from the Dictionnaire d'esthétique.

        Lat. Continuus, Continuitas, which reffered either to continere (hold together), or to continuare ( follow directly).     What is continuous, in space, or time, stretches seamlessly, without interruption.



        Après avoir travaillé pendant un mois sur “Measures” et étant maintenant plus familier avec l'Avenue Georgette et le boulevard Sébastepol nous avons observé la notion de continuité sous différentes formes. Il y a une continuté dans la construction géométrique des deux sites ou dans la manière dont on passe d'un espace publique à un espace privé par exemple.

        Le moule que nous avons produit, notre “hybride” est l'essence de cette continuité retrouvée sur la parcelle 19 de Paris et Lausanne. La mise en place d'une ligne directrice au sein de deux villes, à des kilomètres l'une de l'autre.

                                                                                        _

        After working for a month on “Measures” and now being more familiar with avenue Georgette and boulevard Sebastepol. Jonathan and I have witnessed continuity under various forms. Continuity in the geometric construction of both sites. Or, for instance, continuity between public spaces and private ones.

        The final mold we have produced “hybrid” is the embodiement this continuity found on plot 19 of Paris and Lausanne. The installment of a guiding line among two cities, miles apart.



    We used perspective drawings as tools to tweak how we wanted our hybrid to look like:

  • Enclosure within continuity - process

    Par Enea, Dana, Alex O, 11/10/15

           

    Various scales englobed in various social programs, a social scale with a gradient of details that accompany the individual. In lausanne, a warm, welcoming, yet solid horizontality. In Paris, a vertical, private, haussmannian grid-like grandness.


    As a main element, our section of Lausanne contains an arch, structured by the slabs that give the whole facade a horizontal rhythm. These elements being the starting point of a passage, they symbolize different movements and the interaction of diverse programs, traversing the building and directly connecting the external roads on both sides of the building with the interior court.

    Monge de Lausanne 1:33 (plan, élévation, et coupe)



    We decided to focus on the arch and the contrast of the above space for our mould of Lausanne. The private space is separated from the public space by a balcony.

    Moule de Lausanne 1:33




    Paris has a door overlooking the sidewalk framed by a pair of imposing columns defining the vertical axe that closes off the entrance to a private space.

    Monge de Paris 1:33 (plan, élévation, coupe)


    The hybrid merges the horizontality of the welcoming lines that introduce the pedestrian and/or vehicle to the arch and across the building with the vertical, grid-like system of Paris (that ensures a closed off, private space).

    Superposition de calques, montrant une fenêtre de Paris imposée dans l'arche de Lausanne 1:33

    Adding part of an apartment window from Paris within the arch expands this very contrast as the continuous, semi-cercle of the arch is suddenly cut off, forming a new space that is no longer viewed as an invitation.


    For the mould of the hybrid, we integrated several details within the arch that extend out, and continue along the facade. It is nearly cubic-shaped in order to ensure an imposable and oppressive aspect. In an attempt to make a contrast between the heavy appearance of the mould and it's actual weight, the volume of the cub is filled with styrofoam. Thereby, it symbolises the remaining of a passage despite the obstacles to it's fluidity.
