    Week 2


    "Demolition sites: The high walls with their bister-colored lines around the chimney flues, reveal, like the cross-section of an architectural plan, the mystery of intimitate distributions... A curious spectacle, these open houses with their floorboards suspended over the abyss, their colorful flowered wallpaper still showing the shape of the rooms, their staircases leading nowhere now, their cellars open to the sky, their bizzare collapsed interiors and battered ruins. It all resembles, though without the gloomy tone, those uninhabitable structures, which Piranesi outlined with such feverish intensity in this etchings."


    Questionning our basic ideas, we tried to understand the ambivalence oft the notions "balance" and "embracement" and to find out which atmosphere it expresses.  Inspired by Benjamin Walter's "Arcade Project", we would like to explore on the one hand the feeleing of security and on the other hand confinement and restriction, which are all included in the notion of embracement. Representing opposed elements of  Benjamin Walter’s quote like „the staircases leading nowhere“ and „cellars open to the sky",  our project won't express balance only physically but also conceptually.

    Our  project is a tower, and consists of a spiral staircase, which disposes rooms circularly. We decided to put it in the middle of the proto-structure, it permits to watch the other projects from different levels in different dispositions.

    Week 1

    By reconsidering our two projects "Planes", we tried to find out the main ideas and most important elements, which we could insert into our new project „Rooms“. Inspired by Tatlin Vladimir’s «Monument To The Third International», we decided to work on embracement and balance.

    To better visualize the relations between our two projects, we had to draw the plan and the elevation of the proto structure, and to insert the details of our planes which we were interested in.

    After analizing the drawings, we had the idea to superpose different levels in a shifted way and to find out the best possibility to express equilibration.

  • PLANES FINAL

    I. Research, Concept and Evolution

    During our first and second project we were working on symmetry and the relation between inside and outside. I decided to insert this to main points in my third project. The symmetry involves an abolition of the inside and outside, which is important for the continuation of my project. The facade won't be a wall anymore, which seperates two spaces, but a support for the stairs, which link them. The windows won't only permit a look to the other side, but also a passage.

    Evolution of my project




     II. Site

    When you climb up a tower, you have several windows where you can see the evolution of the view and you will have the best view at the highest point. Lena’s plaster, which is situated beside, is the highest one, and allows you a view over the whole site. My project represents what happens in the tower. The different platforms of the stairs, which are on both sides of my plaster allow you to see what happens inside the site around my project.

    Par Salome Stoffel, 23/11/15

    I. Drawings

    For our third project, I decided to work on our plaster of Lausanne and to develop the main points of our first and second project, the idea of symmetry and the definition of inside and outside. I imagined two planes on both sides of my facade to create a new symmetric plaster.


    Image Mon Nov 30 2015 10:36:59 GMT+0100 (Mitteleuropäische Zeit)   Image Mon Nov 30 2015 10:36:59 GMT+0100 (Mitteleuropäische Zeit)




    I decided to relie the planes with stairs, which are also symmetric.

    The symmetry of the plaster allowed me to eliminate the mention of inside and outsde, because it is identical on both sides and the stairs, which are the passage from one plane to the other, pass from one side to the other.
