DEPARTING FROM THE DOUBLE ELEMENT OF THE PROJECT BEFORE, I STARTED REFLECTING ON THE CONCEPT OF THE PROJECT "PLANES". HEREBY I FOUND MY INSPIRATION IN THE FACT OF CREATING CURVES WITH THE HELP OF A CERTAIN GEOMETRY OF STRAIGHTS. 

VISITING OUR SITE IN LAUSANNE, WHICH IS SITUATED ON THE HIGEHTS POINT OF LAUSANNE'S OLD TOWN, I DECIDED TO CREATE A SPACE, WHICH SERVES AS A 360° PANORAMA, WHERE YOU CAN ENJOY AN AMAZING VIEW, BEING IN A SPACE, WHICH WELCOMES YOU TO STAY AND REST.

THIS REMINDED ME A LOT OF THE "REICHSTAGSKUPPEL" (SIR NORMAN FOSTER) IN BERLIN, WHICH SERVED AS AN EXTERNAL INSPIRATION.

THE SLOT FOR THE PANORAMA IS FORMED BY A GEOMETRICAL CONSTRUCTION IN THE CENTRE OF THE TWO COUPOLES, WHICH KEEPS A SAME DISTANCE ALL AROUND. WITHIN THESE COLUME, THE PLUS COLUME IS CHANGING HIS FORM AND FORMING A PORTING ELEMENT OF THE STRUCTURE. 

THE SPACE IS GOING TO HAVE THE FORM OF A PERFECT ELLIPSE AS THIS ALLOWES TO HAVE THE EYE LEVEL OF A PERSON ON THE SAME HEIGHT OF THE PANORAMA.

TO ARRIVE AT THE PANORAMA, I CONSTRUCTED SPIRAL STAIRS, WHICH ARE STARTING FROM THE BOTTOM, WHERE YOU CAN FIND THE GROUND OF LAUSANNE, TO THE PANORAMA.
