• 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.

    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

  • Measures

    Par Nicolas Otti, Yekan Deli, 27/09/15

    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.

    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.

    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.
