I. Cutting Column +
The Column is cut with respect to the distinct planes of the plaster.

III. Light & Planes :
1. Light and Shadows on Lausanne's façade.
Since I am working with the reflexions and so with the light rays, i decided to study the orientation of the Lausanne's Facade
Rue du Petit-Chêne
Considering the environment as one of the most important factors influencing the space formed by the planes, I begin by working with the sun’s path. I found out that the axis of reflection runs East-West, which is the ideal building orientation. The sun rises in the east, and sets in the west, however it does so moving along a path in the northern part of the sky.
I used this information when creating the form of my planes-plaster.
2. Light & Shadows on the column + with the plaster
East-South side: the side that faces south is the only side that will get the sun the whole day
Sunrise, The eastern side will only get the morning sun.
Sunset, the west will get the sunlight in the afternoon and the north no direct sunlight at all.
IV. Planche Libre
Plan research and space seperation:
Different axis of reflexion determine two distinct spaces: Real and Virtual
