The main thread of the project is infinity and connections. A plane corridor made in cardboard is put on a wooden proto-structure, with square forms, in order to materialize infinity. In the center of the model, there is a "way-out", which represent a connection to another space (more precisely the connection between Lausanne and Zurich).

The proto-structure is modified to have a bigger surface, which the plaster can cover. Consequently, it enhances the idea of infinity and connection. The idea is based on the Supersurface.

Week 2 / 3
The circle represent an infinite corridor, that links Zurich and Lausanne on the situation model. The most important moment is the connection between the ring and the external structure made in copper (on the side of the situation model). As a matter of fact, it is the threshold between the hallway and a particular space. This moment is shown on the wooden proto-structure, with a plaster model at a bigger scale.

The central part of the proto-structure is the moment that is highlighted, and the plaster is at the extremity to enhance the idea of infinity.
