The weekend before loading the truck, I drew for the very last time of the year our wall. This is the non-permeable one, with all the slats and all the spaces between them. I also drew two details in axonometry in order to understand how we would pre-fabricate the slat panels. We simply built two horizontals holding all the slats so that we would just put those horizontals on the exitsting frames.

When we learned that our walls were going down by 1.65 meter, we were all pre-fabricating our walls and so we didn't have a correct drawing. This last drawing was then showing the size of the wall we would actually build.
But when we arrived in Evian, we learned that an error in the measures of the slope would again change the height of the walls, by another 40 centimeters. Our walls were 2 meters smaller than the beginning.
My drawing wasn't showing anymore the actual wall at the site. It became the part of the process and not the end of the process.
Planning represents a crucial—yet conceptually often overlooked—aspect of any constructive project. In what order do you assemble and fix different elements? How long should each task last? How many people, and whom, should you dispose of and at what moment?
Preliminary planning of the construction process. All elements are named after the following nomenclature (made in great part by Eric Gozzi):
Composing groups to coordinate the different tasks was also key. Who excels at what tasks? Who works well together? In response, 5 groups of 3 were created (ranging from 'E1' to 'E5' in the planning above). Each group had a precise series of tasks to accomplish.
Ultimately, the planning was truly useful on site—particularly in the earlier stages. However, as different problems were encountered, many acts had to be altered and the order of assembly as well as the composition of groups also consequently modified. All in all we were positively surprised that we were able to advance much faster than what we had initially planned.
