Window-Lausanne, Door-Paris

Par Clea Balestra, Rolando Valarezo, 27/09/15

The reasons for which we chose to analyse this front are:

  • the rhythm of 3 that we can find on it (3 floors, 3 windows in each floor)
  • it is in the middle of the road
  • the size that it have compared to the other two fronts nearby (it is little)

 So about the choice of our "Super Element" we followed this logic of centralisation and we caught the middle window because it turns out in evidence thanks the two pillar.

TOOL OF LAND-MEASURING

To design our tool we built an object that permitted us to take directly the proportions at the scale 1:66

The utilisation is based on the view on a grate

this tool has a system of weights and pivots to regulate the verticality of the grate according to the slope.

As the square of the grate is at the scale of 1:66, it means that 1m=1.5cm, it's enough to place a mark on the front (ex: a double-sided tape of 1m, like in the third picture) and compose it in pieces.

CONCLUSION

maybe the buildings' structure determinate a rythm of three on the front when the space is limitated.
