    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.

  • PLANES - WEEK 3: Integrating the project to the protostructure and playing with perspective

    Par Philippe Mourelle, 19/12/16

    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.

    The plaster uses different planes to recreate the same perspective seen in Massagrande's "La Stanza Rosa" from two different points of view. The disposition and intersection of these planes have as a result two interesting situations: a very open space and a much more closed one.

    To achieve this effect it was necessary to start by drawing the plane and the two elevations from the wanted points of view, then watching what the result was in the form of a perspective, which is closer to the real view from the human eye.

                            - The plaster casts are placed on a grid, following different criteria which can be used

                               to define the characteristics of the fragment. The resulting placement will then be 

                                         used to integrate the casts into the project from " Measures ".
