Planes_Time Mark_Final

Par Lucien Roy, 15/12/15

I. Planes

The idea is to catch vega throw the observatory only at a precise moment. This created a specific time mark as the Maya did.    One part of the column, tilted and misaligned compared to the building, reduces the vision such that Vega appears only one time in a year. Moreover, it creates a spatial link between frontside and backside.
