• Double - Elements _ A Door - Bed_ Final Week

    Par Nicolas Otti, Samuel Aeschimann, Lucien Roy, Yekan Deli, 10/11/15

    "Our double-element is a door-bed wich creates a passage between differents worlds. We wanted to overcome the empty space between the back of our two facades. In this research, the climbing tent inspired us and brought us the idea of suspension and balance. The transcription of it was to fix a bed and play with balance and the rope's tension inside a "chemin de traverse". Two specifics levels and positions of the bed bring two differents ways to transit from a threshold to another."

  • Double - Elements _ A Door - Bed_ Second Week

    Par Lucien Roy, Nicolas Otti, Samuel Aeschimann, Yekan Deli, 31/10/15

    The notion of the door has been omitted and the framework took too much importance. We worked on the essential elements ( bed, threshold, mechanism, door,…)and finally we modulated our concept.

    Our door has been transformed in two doors which permits the transition from two exterior worlds. The space between this two doors creates an imaginary interior.

    There is a difference of 170 cm between the two thresholds of our moulds and the mechanism, made of ropes and counterweight, permits to recreate this conditions.

  • Double - Elements _ A Door - Bed

    Par Lucien Roy, Nicolas Otti, Samuel Aeschimann, Yekan Deli, 24/10/15

    CONTEXT:

    From our four sites, we analysed the possible links between them for the construction of our double element. We occurred about the interiority and the exteriority of our molds, which brings us to the dream and the reality on each side of the plaster cast.

    SEARCHING:

    After an analysis of the situation maquette, our interest for climbing bring us the idea of a climbing tent. The idea of a door-bed, as double element, was evident to create a little space. An idea appeared to use the angle of our plaster for the form of the double element but we choose a mecanism to transform the door in a little bed-shelter.

    Our door - bed permits many positions for the body:  the main positions standing, seating, lying down.

    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.

  • Inside Paris - MEASURES

    Par Lucien Roy, Samuel Aeschimann, 27/09/15


    I. MEASURING : 


    An Angle Protactor

    Our tool let us survey the facade in Lausanne. Two sticks (one immobile, one indicate the important elements of the facade) and a protactor made of cardboard. We aim the points/lines of the facade and draw little lines on the cardboard.

    II. DRAWINGS


    Lausanne

    We put the cardboard on the paper to transpose the prints and built the lines of the facade.

    Paris

    We took the height of a woman on the pavement to create the unit to build the facade.

    We decided to work on the guiding lines of the facade to show the geometry. To accentuate the horizontaly line and the angle of the facade reveal the slope of the road.

    Like Lausanne, we decided to accentuate the important lines of the facade. Looking Paris through the Super element of Lausanne show us a little piece of the plaster we developped in detail
