I. CHOOSING THE SUPER-ELEMENT AND MESURING METHODE
The super-element that we chose is the door, because from this point we could measure the whole facade.
Our tool, inspired by the timber cross, let us measure the facade in the 3 dimensions; thanks to the Thales' theorem we can easily measure length, hight and depth.
II. INSIDE LAUSANNE
Construction of the first mold step by step from the drawings to the finished product
After reflexion we decided to concentrate the concept of our mold on how we measured the facade and how we could transcribe it into volume.
In the final attempt we can see the cone of vision (from the observator's point of view) who cuts through the facade.

visualise the cuting line.
III. INSIDE PARIS
On the opposite side of the road, in Paris, we had to choose this angle and we measured the rythmes of it by approximating the hight of a person who was walking nearby.
Then we chose the window (the one with the balcony) from the third floor as super-element because it provided the vertical rythmes and dimensions of all the windows of facade. Nevertheless it's still unique because of its balcony.
this is the first attempted mold from Paris from the drawings to the finished plaster.
For the final mold of Paris we followed our concept of measuring by putting most of the details by side and leaving just the essential verticals (windows) and horizontals(bricks) who depicts the facade.
