    SUPER MAQUETTE

    At the beginning of the project, we were separated into groups of two that, from that moment on, worked together on both a façade in Paris and in Lausanne. Starting with Lausanne, an element on the façade was defined as “super element”. In all cases, it was an eye catching element to the group and additionally used as reference point for all measures of the façade. In order to get the measures as precise as possible, a measuring tool was built to find a certain geometry, rhythm and characteristic in the facade. As a next step, 60m2 around the super element were chosen to serve as base for creating a plaster of the fragment. By using the super elements of Lausanne and Paris (which was chosen beforehand as well), the two fragments were put in relation with one another. A big step in this was to leave an opening in the plaster where the super elements were situated, in order that one really could see the façade of Paris though the super element of Lausanne or the other way around. Having done that, the plasters were placed onto the right spot on the plan of Lausanne/Paris by inserting brass stem into them.  The difference of height between the two streets was of courserespected. This is why the plaster on the lowest point in the street of Lausanne was defined as our new point zero, which was placed 8cm above the model. In that way the little models are all almost floating in our newly created street, which is neither Lausanne nor Paris anymore, but our own created space.

    I. IN SEARCH OF "SUPER ELEMENT"

    For ower project we chose a window that we named the "Super Element"


     Image Mon Oct 05 2015 21:30:40 GMT+0200 (CEST)

    The reason we chose it is its location. Its the first one in a secuence of four identical windows.               




    II. MEASURING: THE TOOL & THE PROCESS OF MEASURING

    We had to find a solution to mesure the facade in Lausanne, especially our "Superelement". So we came up with this tool:


    Image Mon Oct 05 2015 22:17:07 GMT+0200 (CEST)


    This Tool mesures the angle (a) between a perpendicular plan and the point we want to mesure (height), also we have to know the distance (d)-distance from the facade to the tool and the hight (t)- distance from the ground to the tool, we use it as on the following picture:

    We put Iphone in the "plate" to check the level. Its important to hold the tool athwart the facade.

    Once we have these mesures we can calculate the height (H) from the point to the ground using pythagore's formula

    Height= d*tan(a)+t.

        1. First attempt: more than just a representation?

    2. Second Attempt: working with the space in between two buildings.

    3. Final Mould and Plaster. Putting priorities in order:  1. "super-element's" presentation

                                                                                  2. showing the slope

                                                                                  3. symbiosis of two buildings

    Observer's point of view

    The Station Point dependes on the position from where we took mesurments.
