• 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.

  • POROSITY // FORM // Paulo Cordeiro & Tom Gaillard

    Par Tom, Paulo, 12/10/15

    Confinement visuel et superposition de deux couches dans un bâtiment (public/privé), notre concept est de
    lier architecture et société, et de voir comment les différentes échelles humaines ont un impact sur la structuration des façades.

  • POROSITY // PROCESS

    Par Tom, Paulo, 11/10/15

    INSIDE PARIS
    Avenue Georgette 8 // Boulevard de Sébastopol 92 // Parcelle 15


    [MONGE LAUSANNE]

    L'utilisation d'un quadrillage (à partir du 2ème étage) ainsi que le prolongement de l'arc-de-cercle créé par les ornements des fenêtres (rez-de-chaussée et 1er étage), nous ont permis de comprendre la structure de la façade.

    En superposition avec le Monge, ces formes géométriques illustrent comment la structure de la façade restreint la vision et la confine dans le bas du bâtiment.

    Force est de constater que le "jeu des espaces", et donc le confinement visuel présent sur la parcelle de Lausanne, l'est également sur la façade parisienne. En occurrence, ce sont les grands espaces à l'intérieur du bâtiment qui attirent le regard.
