• PLANES "Suite et fin" : The Perspective Space

    Par Allae Elfarrah, 20/12/16

    The perspective is a visual representation of the 3d that began in the 5th century in the ancient Greek with Agatharcos. But what if it was no longer just a representation or a visual view but a space itself that we can experience, that's what i thought when i worked in the painting in the previous exercice at the begining of Planes. By having a space that is articulate around the perspective, the feeling that emarge by experiencing it, is the restrictiveness of the space, not just physically (the space is getting smaller) but paradoxically, also for the vision of the user and this feeling is growing up by moving forward and that because as we know the perspective shows the depth and the volume but it has a limit which is the vanishing point.

         The drawings were very important because they helped me to know where to introduce the vertical planes that restrict the vision and which dimension i had to choose (by analysing and studying the vision of the human in the monge and testing the construction details)




    Final Model:

    Construction Details :

    I moved constantly between the drawings and the models so i can test different ideas for the construction and at the end i chose to use 2 different methods.

    The first was to have a mechanism that can be grabbed into the portustructure (and by adding horizontal bars between the two walls the entire structure is well "contreventer")

    The second was to use the same mechanism than the protustructure so it can hold the vertical planes

    And for the choice of the stairs instead of the ramp, that’s because I wanted the user to feel more the changing level and so the space changing (to hold the stairs i added some horizontal bars)



















  • PLANES "suite"

    Par Allae Elfarrah, 19/12/16


    I began by drawing a perspective of the space that is generated by the protostructure to see how does it work

    superposition of 2 points of view with different height (by taking first a regular height (180 cm) and the second will be the limit height that can be used)

    To show more the caracteristics of the perspective space i decided to make a "parcours" that pass by the corridor that is created by the protostructure so you can even see more the difference between the two spaces and accurate the feeling that you had in the space that is created by the project

  • WEEK 9 - PLANES - Casting a painting

    Par Allae Elfarrah, Lorenzo Lamarche, 22/11/16

                                              Task of the week : Casting a painting and then drawing the cast

                                                                                          The cast of the negative space


    The cast has been made in two parts for two reasons : first, without the roof, it is possible to see the different holes made  by the columns. Then, the part of above was more interesting to study without the roof because it is entirely symetrical,                           so when you turn it around, you don't notice any diffences between the top and the bottom.

  • ELEMENTS / to bounce

    We performed the action “To Bounce” around a row of colonnades in the city. Measuring and mapping the key points of this movement (which corresponded to chosen points on the body performing it), we developed a materialisation of this movement both in drawing and in three dimensions. The “bouncing” of our model was translated into a series of unique triangles, each one different, but nonetheless the result of the mapping of the movement of the body in space. In doing this we were able to reduce the movement to its core principles: path, energy and variation.

    The form of the triangle, derived from the points of the moving body in space, has been carried throughout the element as a complete structural system. Every component of the element therefore also constitutes the element’s structure. There is no part of the element that is structurally superfluous, and each components works to support the others. The components of the element have been designed to be easily assembled and disassembled without glue or tools.

    The element acts as both window and door, emphasising the relationships between newly defined spaces, and the creation of thresholds between one space and another. One can step in and out of the element at any point, or continue through it, as it directs the visitor to re-perform our first passage of movement around the columns.

    Axonometry of the element inserted into the site and details of the joints; Detail B shows how to build the joints of the top of the triangle, the other joints within one triangle are built on the principle of detail A. Detail C shows how to build the joint between the triangles.
