• Planes, second exercise

    Par Weber Corentin Raphael Nathan, 25/11/16

    For the next exercise we had to use the same painting and perspective:

    The second exercise was to make a protostructure and choose two planes of our painting.

    After our choice we should imagine how those two planes could interract with the protosctructure. On plane should be tectonic (a volume but not a uniform plane) and the other plan should be stereotomic (more like a concrete wall or something like it). And we had also to remake the cast of the void in scale 1:132.


    The cast:

    I choose the ground as the stereotomic plane and the wall with the door as a tectonic plane. What i wanted to do is to link the first two spaces of the painting.

     I chose first the plane of the ground to make a base where we could circulate. This plane should be really strong to support the weight of some people walking.

    The second plane, the tectonic one, is the main way of linking the two rooms, by making a designed wall I tried to

    make a structure that doesn't allow people to go through it but also doesn't block the view through the different spaces.

  • Real size

    Par Cheneval Alain Gabriel, Ogbonna Gabriel Ihechimnemerem, 20/10/16

    Tracing the bridge on your strip of the plan was the first contact with the whole project and the artefacts of Zurich. This exercise allowed US to deal with difficulties which you can face when you leave your drawings and start dealing with measures and dimensions on scale 1:1. Based on the plan, we had to measure the distance in real life and we observed that there were some differences between the two. The fact that the different strips were arbitrarily cut forced us Not only TO work together in Our group but also with the other ones to compare the continuity of your work.


    We observed that there was a pavement that we could use to build to axes and trace the bridge pretty precisely and easily on the floor. By comparing the marks tracing the bridge with the other groups, we could see that our measures and work were precise even if we worked on two different levels, ours being 5m below the place.

    here are some pictures of the processus:


    We first counted and measured the pavements and reported them on the strip to create the to axes. reported the whole width of the bridge with a rope and a square to be as precise as possible. We could finaly see how the artefact adapted itself to the place Bel-Air and to the objects on site

  • Real size (measures)

    Par Ramseyer Roman, Weber Corentin Raphael Nathan, 14/10/16

    In that exercice, we received an assigned area in which the bridge of Zurich was placed on top of the Place Bel aire. We had to take measure on the plan where the bridge was placed and place it in the street with masking tape. That work was very interesting because it permises to see its real position of the virtual bridge. We trace it, taking measures and angles in relation with the façade of the building.

  • Exercise 1 - Real size - Week 1

    Par Born François Nicolas Emmanuel, Terrien Romane, 14/10/16

    Problem
    By confronting the "artefact" of Zurich with the site in Lausanne ( Bel Air ), we confronted 2 different scales, two different cities, two different periods, two paradigms.
    The challenge was to visualize the confrontation of scales on a real-size experience. For that , we drew on the spot the part of the bridge appearing on our assigned zone. Consequently, we developed a strategy on how to trace the curve of the bridge on our site.

  • P1 E1 Real size

    Par Michel Kyra Lea, Vié Cyrielle Noémi, 04/10/16

    The first physical contact with the space assigned took place during this exercise.

    Having received as an instruction to measure a given area and the elements it contains, the contour of a fictional bridge was to be traced onto the ground of the area.

    Details of final drawing


    The challenge lied in determining which auxiliary lines would be helpful to trace the four parallels. The area assigned being particular because of its density and significant public use, we have had to deal with the people using this public space while we were tracing the lines - it made this exercise a very lively and interesting, as we were regularly asked the purpose of our doing or as kids would tear off the stripes of tape we had just aligned.
