• DOUBLE ELEMENT: FINAL

    Par Lena Brucchietti, Nicolas John, Salome Stoffel, Diana Ugnat, 08/11/15

    I. CONCEPT

    Our Double Element is placed at the frontier of two distinct spaces. One space can decide or not to open itself to the other in order to create a link between the two spaces. The different positions of our element, a Table-Door, as well as the wheel mechanism link each façade of the site to the others. The double element becomes a passage where shapes find a response on the other side. Its specificity is to be litterally hanging on the facade. It gives it a polyvalent position in the space where it can be a roof as weel as a ground surface.

    Axes are used as a support only when the Element is a table. When it is a door, the axes loose their function.

    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.
