     Au milieu des masses de personnes s’élève une étrange structure. La curiosité nous y emporte. Lorsqu’on est a l’intérieur des fin murs incluent la ville, la font dialoguer avec l’espace, le module même.

    Des bancs sont disposée au milieu de la pièce. Ils nous invitent à s’assoir, et ils se baissent alors petit à petit. l’on comprend que le poids de notre seul corps ne suffit pas, et il faut donc trouver d’autres personnes prêtes à tenter une expérience,  à transformer l'espace.

  • WEAVING A PARTICIPATIVE ARCHITECTURE

    Our purpose is to bring people with different origins, professions and backgrounds together in one room. They are different but yet similar with one simple thing in common. Curiosity.

    The first idea was to create a participatory space, where people join forces to build together something different, something new. 

    The art school next to our site triggered our inspiration and lead us toward an exhibition gallery. To amplify the use of this room, people will be able to transform it into a theater.

    In order to create this participatory architecture we reflected on a very simple movement, the motion of sitting down. The concept is such that when one sits down on an available seat it will gradually lower down and raise a part of the scene. To reassemble the whole scene, all the seats of the theater are to be necessarily occupied.

  • The playground

    Par Benessa El Daccache, 19/12/16

                     Architecture is the thoughtful making of space. The continual renewal of architecture comes 

                                         from the changing concepts of space. - Louis Kahn, 1957



    Planes are one of the simplest architectural elements that can create spaces. By exploring the length, width and height we can allow people to understand our intent. With the minimum that one needs, we can express clarity and lightness.

    We need to carve out the space within which users can feel free to explore, pushing aside the pointless navigation and dead end processes. To build a space with a sense of intrigue is what keeps the wanderer interested, not knowing what to find next in the corner. A space that makes them think.

                      The sun does not realize how wonderful it is until after a room is made. - Louis Kahn.

    The use of natural light helps create an exciting environment. Sculpting the light the way we like it gives us full control. The positive effect of natural light on one's mood confirms the need to bring as much natural light into the space as possible.

    The vertical planes oppose to the conventional ones not only by their lightness but also by their generous openings.

                                   The narrative and sequencing of connections and boundaries are described as the poetry of movement.

                          The Asparagus Vendor, Pieter de Hooch, 1675–80.


    In this painting three people invade the first plane but nonetheless we seem attracted to the lady in the third plane. She is positioned in the corner, alone, on a step near the windows in order to be the one receiving the daylight, while the other characters seem to be in the shadows.

    The challenge in the first assignment was to create the painting's space that the artist put forward. Many elements in this artwork wooed us and was seeking our attention.

    The interior is divided in two floors: the first one welcomes the person at the entrance with its pierced facade, while the second one gives a mere look to the first floor and a better look on the outside.
