    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.

    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.

    The idea of the last week was to make groups of four to assemble the project and have stronger structure. But the idea went further because assembling individual project means creating connections between us and to group with project that you could gain in quality from each other.

    A second task was to develop the nods and the way it could be built. We had to think how the wood part could be built in reality (no glue but screws or pins) and to do it in a 1:20 scale.

    I decided to move up my project because it was to tiny inside and I could not express what I wanted to express from the initial painting. Then, I could build a wall that is more or less the same dimension (scale 1:20) from the painting. The floor is the result of searching a solution for the joint between the plaster wall and the wood floor into the proto-structure and it should not be taken as a final solution.

    The general idea was the recreate the initial painting in 3D. I focused on the 2 main walls of the room that I decided to cast them to be stereotomic because of their heavy appearance. Then, I took the square pattern of the floor to have my tectonic part and I created a deepness with this constructed element.
