                                                                                    Concept:

    „The more you mount the more you discover“ is the concept of my work in PLANES. You mount the steep ramps to discover how the wall and the ramp is built. The two ramps are giving you a view in all four directions and with each steep your horizon changes.

    There is nothing glued on the protostructure, the whole model can be disassembled.

                                                                                 Of Entropy


        Beginning of our project involved re-enacting and mapping the action ''of Entropy'', with our bodies, in the space of the city. We came to understand Entropy as a series of multi-directional movements exploding exponentially outwards from a centre point. For our double element, we then imagined a space that materializes and contains both this node of centrality and the possibility of its dispersal, both within the element itself and in its relation to the surrounding public street. From inside the element, it is now the body that remains stationary and the eye that moves: as a series of panoramic windows allows the inhabitant's gaze to disperse in multiple directions throughout the city.

                                            From the inside, the viewer has a panoramical view of the random movements which surround him

                              Due to the study of the movement, we could decide where we would place the windows, in order to see the different body                                                                                                    parts of the people surrounding the structure

                                          Even if the structure was made for an inhabitant, the view is also redirected for someone outside the structure.

                                                                                        The windows act like a funnel for the eye.

    Finally, we have done a study about the height of the different inhabitants of the structure. Indeed, the view is completely different from the starting point at 170cm (medium height of an adult) and the finale view at 120cm (height of a child).
