• Habitable passage

    Par Laura Périat, 19/12/16

        This project began with a picture by Pieter de Hooch. What did I find intriguing about this picture? What was worth studying in detail? How about the door? It is a passage that leads from the street to the courtyard, but what if it was more than just a simple door? This is where my work took it's roots.

        What if this door was more of a passage? And What if this passage wasn't just a narrow corridor leading from a space to another? It could be more than just two walls and a ceiling. How about making  using this wall as not only a barrier, but an object we can use? And how about a bench, creating a stop between this sidewalk and courtyard? Not only this, but what if this inside wall also served as a door into another space? This passage would not only be a transition between two outdoor spaces, but an outdoor and an indoor space. This exploration was done through various drawings.

           A dark passage? Light coming from an open door? And what does that light show? Is it a bench in                                                    what would usually be a wall?

    In this third week into the project planes, the development of the maquette in the protostructure is in process. 

    A hall from one space to another, that doesn't only serve as a passage. Why not take a break? Sit on a bench sheltered from the elements. This concept is the basis of my project planes.

  • Planes - Week 1

    Par Laura Périat, Thuy Nguyen, 21/11/16

    This week was the beginning of our new project planes. We chose a painting from Pieter de Hooch, which was the source of our project. We had to focalise on an interesting aspect of the picture. This was the first step for the construction of the mould. This picture is interesting because it portrays a transition between not only two spaces, but two exterior spaces.

                We then drew a Monge at scale 1:66 and did a plaster of the transition between

                the spaces in scale 1:66.

  • HEAVEN'S DOORS

    Par Thuy Nguyen, Gimmi Giacuzzi, Laura Périat, Natalia Stavrovskaja, 18/11/16

    For this Element's project, we chose as our site the Church's forecourt, which is situated next to a very dense street. This site gives the pedestrian two possible paths differentiated by two varied heights, but we've noticed that the pedestrian doesn't use this path in front of the Church. We wanted to change that and encourage the pedestrian to walk on this forecourt. 

    What if we got away from the urban density that is present in the town of Lausanne ? This constant agitation, this permanent movement, dominating this street. People pass, fuss around, without striving to look at the beauty that surrounds them. Let us make them look above them just one second. Let us stop them in their tracks. Let us peek their curiosity. Put yourself above this density. Close behind you and rest for a moment. Look around you and breathe.

    Our drawings were enriched by a number axonometric details, a global axonometry and the doors' movement.

    At first, our element looked entirely different, with the main structure taking up an important space, but also being the main part that we saw. It also wasn't just one element, but an addition of elements. We then tried to lighten the structure, creating an element with more grace. The shape of the platform isn't a simple rectangle, but was designed according to the angles that join the church's door. Furthermore, we decided to reproduce the angle of the church, which has an inclination of 5° according to the railing.

                                                                Our final maquette, inserted in our site


    Our element is finally built on the site. It sits above the railing, but the railing is a main source of support. Such a slim elevation, almost as if the platform was floating above our heads. Offering a special observatory, private and open at the same time, still and moving with the street rush.

    As a final step, we built the element on the site and finally got to see the result of our work. The aim that was to peek pedestrians' curiosity was achieved, as we saw that many people stopped to at our element.
