A view down a corridor by Hoogstraten
For my project I kept the impression of deepness created by the perspective work made by the artiste in order to realize a trompe-l'oeil.
Axonometry scale 1:20
Plan and sections scale 1:20 with details in axonometry 1:5 and 1:10
After three weeks of individual work we were asked to put our protostructures together with the aim to stabilize them and to enhance our own concept. The difficulty was not to lose the characteristics of our individual projects.
Our studio put emphasis on the constructive aspect. For instance a wall could not be made out of one piece of cardboard or sticks of wood could not be glued together side by side because it would not be feasible in 1:1 scale.
The exterior and the interior were processed in two different ways. The exterior is more uniform with marked horizontal lines to reinforce the horizontal movement. On the other hand, the interior has vertical lines that beat the pace and give the feeling that the corridor is very long. I used a second cardboard to avoid relief on the wall in order to keep the continuity.
The stairs are a physical connection between my project and my neighbor's. In order to make this connection even stronger the stairs combine the material of the two floors. The more you climb, the less you see plaster. Concerning the detail of the join with the floor, I exaggerated the height in order to show the mechanism instead of hiding it as I did in a previous model.
