We realised from the previous work that providing stuff to users should be done by the architecture itself. So we re-observed the work that the urbanist team did the first week and analysed the flux of people in the site and by providing a gathering place we also wanted to let people pass through the protostructure.
The ramp, if it's correctly dimensioned, alows people to walk on it and to lay down on it. We also wanted to keep the idea of the platform but we changed the way to displace them by folding some part of the ramp.

Relation with the project above
The aim is to gather groups from 2 to 6 persons without melting them too much by creating different stages. This is the exact situation we are confronted at school, everybody has already seen each other but they don't necessarily know them. Different steps and body positions (stand up, sitting on bench and floor, laying down) creates visual connection even if they aren't in a close relation.
