    In this stage i work with the wall, cherching the way in wich the two sides could communicate through the wall.

     The information that i used to communicate to the other side are the body's higth and its distance from the wall.

      I realised that these two informations (the body's higths anf its distance from the wall) can be used as a plane.

     It means that the higth and the position of the body in a side could influance the space directly in the oder side, making interact two people

    I will apply a plane as communication element of distance from the wall

    I carve into the plaster to bring out 4 diferrents configuration of levels that i found interesting and not repetitives

    The wall thickness plays a important rolle  to the research of how does i go to make two sides interact o communicate between those?. Is for that reason that i handle ,in cartons models 1:66, the walls thinckness as emptiness ,in the 4 configurations .

    For the next:

    Now, I have 4 situations in wich i must intervene to link two sides, and to have a guideline of how i gonne do that , i need to use the human sizes into espace. i'll chose the situation or configuration with the strongest feeling of union between two sides by a wall.

    Il était une fois un enfant qui voulait attraper une souris, mais cette dernière, trop rapide pour lui, lui échappe et se faufila dans un petit trou d'un mur. L'enfant déçu ensaya alors d'appaler le petit mamifère à travers l'étroite ouverture.

    Au même moment, de l'autre côté du mur, un autre enfant entendit sa voix,intrigué il s'approcha d'un des nombreux orifices qui penchait la paroi. Se concentrant poutant, il ne comprenais pas. En effet, les paroles qui émanaient du mur étaient dans une autre langue. Toutefois, il reconnut au son que cette voix était celle d'un autre enfant et lui répendit alors.

    L'enfant qui poursuivais la souris fut surpris, l'animal lui répendait-il ?! En  prétant un peu plus attention il finit tout de même de comprendre qu'un autre enfant parlant une langue étrangère se trouvait de l'autre côté.

    Ce qui était étonnant, c'est que le bruit qui émetait un des enfants ne sortait pas par le même endroit  de l'autre côté. Il semblait qui la petite souris avait créusé un système de tunnels de telle sorte qu'un bruit émis d'un côté, se propageait jusqu'à un endroit aléatoire du mur de l'autre côté.

    C'est ainsi que le deux enfants finirent par devenir amis. Ils utilisent le son et le mut pour jouer sur toute la surface du sol dont le niveaux était différent des deux côtés.

    I created this plaster because i found some similarity betwen my plaster segment and the drawing tha i made thinking in the history that i wrote: A wall separating twos sides with differents levels.

    For the next i'll take out some informations from the plaster, analizing it. I would like to create differents situations in wich i could intervene to stablish communication betwen two sides in each one.

    Final Result :

    After further research, we found that there is no need to build the extra supports underneath the table, since the double element will be inlaid in the centred plaster. On the dividing line on the table, a curtain is installed, which can be seen as some kind of filter: When nobody is standing at the bar table, sounds and shadows from the other side of the curtain are still present to make people suspicious and curious to interact with the other side. Once both sides are occupied, the curtain can be wind up from both sides and the border is broken. For both of the two a whole new world opens up and nothing hinders a interaction anymore. Since it is unpredictable what you will get to see when stepping towards the double element, it becomes a place for spontaneous interactions and talks. This will make everyone want to come back the next time they pass by.


    We decided to build an other model where we improved the system and different construction details.

    Image Sun Nov 08 2015 19:26:34 GMT+0100 (CET)



    We drew the plan of the table that we used to build both 1/5 and 1/1 elements.

    Image Sun Nov 08 2015 19:26:34 GMT+0100 (CET)


    We also made several other drawings of our element in situation to show the achieved effect of our double element. 

    For this we made a monge projection of the element in the “real” situation as well as a perspective.

    Image Tue Nov 10 2015 08:06:06 GMT+0100 (CET)



    Of course in order to build these details, we made constructions drawings in the original scale.


    Image Tue Nov 10 2015 08:06:06 GMT+0100 (CET)




    It was also important to make a detail of our central rail to see if our plans worked correctely before building the hole thing.

  • Discovering space

    Par Clea Balestra, Niels Galitch, Rolando Valarezo, Olivia Wechsler, 19/10/15

    Week 1


    In order to get a better overview over the situation of our four plasters, we drew a new plan and two new cuts. 



    Image Mon Oct 26 2015 08:14:45 GMT+0100 (CET)


    This drawing helped us find new links between all the super elements. Furthermore we discovered an interesting situation between the two spaces around the plaster in the center of the situation.


    As we already had two perspectives from each super element in Lausanne towards the according super element in Paris, only one additional perspective was needed to get a good overview:


    Image Mon Oct 19 2015 08:14:56 GMT+0200 (CEST)



    We than proceeded with the research of what kind of double element we were going to create. For our situation we found it interesting to work with this special relation that was created by one of the façades being in the middle of the others. We decided that our double element would be located in super element of the central facade. We used wire on the situation model to link all our super elements to help us visualise all the relations possible.



    Image Sun Oct 25 2015 10:50:37 GMT+0100 (CET)


    The function of our double element was to create direct links between the super elements of the different facades therefore it had to be able to open and close so that the different relations between elements and spaces could be manually modified. Also we chose to associate our window with a table because it was more in relation with the themes of public and movement.

    Since the table and the window made one double-element it was essential for us that we built both, (just the table would appear completely out of context).


    Week 2 


    We decided that we would first build the frame of our window on a 1/5 scale as well as some tests for the corners at a 1/1 scale. 


    1/5 scale construction of the window frame




    Tests for the corners of our window frame at 1/1 scale


    Image Sun Oct 25 2015 10:50:37 GMT+0100 (CET)


    These models helped us see what would be possible to make and how we would be able to add the table within the frame.

    After several tests we finally found a system that satisfied us. Our table would be composed of four platers, one central and static and three others that would be able to open and close on the central platter. Those three would be orientated in the direction of one of the super elements from the other facades. Thanks to this mechanism we can easily imagine how the different people in the different buildings can decide to exchange different items for example by opening and closing the diverse parts of the table.

    The next drawing illustrates how the platers can be moved thanks to an axe of rotation.

    Week 3

    After researching the realization of the double element, a lot of complications came up. For this reason we decided to make some changes regarding the functionality of the project. The idea was to allow interactions between Lausanne, being on one side of the centered plaster, and Paris, on the other side. In the middle of the table, we introduced a window, which can be closed by a curtain so that interactions are possible in multiple ways.
