Gif du fonctionnement du système
Our room is formed by several modules constituting a bar or coffee place. Each module can be closed or opened depending on the necessity (closed at night, open by day). This is a space for the students of the ZHDK to eat, study or hang out while they are not in class.
The photos show a mock up in 1:10 scale of a single module.

The planes are elevated so that the horizontal parts of the protostructure won't interfere with the view. This levitating planes are disposed on different levels so that the view is directioned either straight (white) or downwards (orange), therefore creating the illusion of the two different existing but non apparent floors. The difference of color signals the two different views and points of view, this creates a distance between them while at the same time indicating the same view but in different colors.
The illusion was all a result of the research in drawings. The perspective was the one that indicated at which height each plane should be for the view to work (the point of view was dictated by the height of an average human being), then the Monge projection shows how the planes are integrated to the protostucture and how to adapt it in order to make it stable. Finally, the axonometric projection gives a general view of the finished project.
To integrate the object to the protostucture, it was very important to eliminate the floor since it was the plane that disturbed the most the perspective from the second point of view. The floor is therefore implicit and particular to each point of view. Each plane or intersection of planes is at a different level, some are higher and some are lower in the protostructure to perfect the perspective seen by the human eye.
