test frameworks and mock-ups (in length plane)
The “lines” we conceived aiming to modify the spatial characteristics of the area between the bridge’s column and the embankment on our site, combine the double function: window-door. We wanted to transform the long, infinite corridor into a well defined space creating thus another closed space limited by the edge of the embankment.The super-element we imagined, built and assembled according to our concept's main idea, adds to the space a light and exclusively made-out-of-wood structure.
Our first feeling on the site was a narrowness feeling, as if we were confined in a corridor between the bridge's immensity and the adjacent embankment, confirmed by a projection on top of the bridge that stops the verticality. For that reason, the embankment, the bridge and it's projection were the only elements we decided show on our casts.
Adding the roof of Brussel really changed the spatiality of the site, even if the narrowness feeling was even more obvious, the immensity of the bridge became relatively small compared to the new dimension that the roof offered.
