We developed the holding structure(the treillis) in order to improve the montage on the site. The whole structure can slide in a compact shape, when the verticals are removed.
Two positions: Scène de vie quotidienne and Stoa
In relation with the shape of the train bridge above as well as the length of the protostructure itself, the passage came naturally as an evidence.
The passage is elevated just in order to allow a person to assess it, while keeping a distance from the ground to keep the analogy with the elevation of the train bridge.
[ source of inspiration ]
Inspired by dynamic projection of lights and shadows produced by the elements in the second phase, in the third one called plans I focused on qualities of certains structures, which can be consider as filters.
[ constructive solutions and process of assemblage ]
The shape of wooden elements is not accidental. I was directly inspired by the element of the second phase of Inside Zurich, the section of the small frame that pivots. After many attempts to import that forme in proto structure and introduce a human scale, I finally chose the middle 9-orientation visible on the bottom right of the sketch below.

[ final model | structure ]
[ final model | realization of the idea ]
The photos below show the infinities surfaces, which filtre the light provoking interesting shadows.
We observe the horizontal surfaces, as well as vertical ones. Thanks to the pattern of shadows they seem to be 'transforming' one into another.
Having simplified forme of the ceiling to minimum, I developed the concept of a surface of projection. To distinguish it from the filtering (working) surface, I had used different material, plaster, instead of wood.
