    View from the human sitting on the chair and looking up to the window : relation between interior and exterior

    Illustration of the interdependence of the window and the chair in the fact that we need to sit above the window, inside of the element, to fully appreciate the hybrid.

    Point of view where the equilibrium is at its peak : the double element seems to stand on only 3 axis which is impossible in the construction but reachable by optical illusion

    The disposition of the secondary structure, scaled to the human body, induces people to enter the system, to confront to it, becoming an integrant part of it. Once having stepped inside the double element, this artefact suggests a relation between an interior and an exterior.

    The human is physically implicated in the spatial construction by his position and location. 

    Picture : ideal body position to access to the most appreciable view of the zenithal window. The human body and the architecture piece are interdependent. Our own implication and perception will define and delimit the space.

    The human body becomes the only vertical axis in his spatial and architectural experience. 

    We reduced the scale of the primary structure to work on dimensions connected to human beings instead of urban features.

    Drawings confronting different scales to fully explain the system 


    We started the working process by choosing some floating points of the topography coming from the previous project. In the need to connect them to a physical element, we decided to link them to the facades from both sides of the street, willing to enhance our concept that is equilibrium. These points and their projections are defining a spatial configuration : the primary structure of our construction.

    Our work has been experimental because we tried to push the concept of equilibrium to its concrete limits by having the least standing points as possible, dealing with the constraint of the use of wood as our exclusive material in the 1:1 making. We will come up with a full scale prototype in which every piece is necessary for the whole system to work and where no superficial mechanism or effect has been added.
