  • Articulations

    Par Estreicher Clement, 28/05/20

    A Project closely carried together with Armand Zanota, Delphine Suter and Ines Branet. Also working on articulation and ergonomy : Aymane Filali, Claire Hennel, Léo Perrin, Luis Melgar, Nina Cruchaud, Stephen Bopeso. Many thanks for everyone's dedication !


    An articulation is an assembly constituting the junction between two or more elements, while still allowing their relative freedom.

    SITUATION


    The part of the project located on the parking lot proposes to link different etymologies related to the construction. As the Germanic relationship between "building" and "post-building/inhabiting" (bauen and bauern) was strongly evoked in the course, we first decided to work on the link that "building" has with "weaving" in Latin - and then to try to reconcile them.

    ENTRANCE


    At the entrance, a series of planes seem to emerge from the staircase and stretch out over the car park like a fluid, extending the fountain of the house (see the group flows). While their varying heights allow for the ascent to the staircase, their great width invites for more than a simple passage. The user can indeed appropriate the entrance in the same way as the large concrete blocks present on the site. The entrance offers a space for rest or discussion, a transition between the site and the house.

    From the top - and underneath.


    STAIRCASE


    The space narrows in the staircase. If the entrance had the characteristics of a common space, the structure of the staircase forces individualism. The interactions [more] between the tightly woven elements reveal interiority, both structurally and psychologically. Within this stairwell, the guest is indeed conditioned before entering the rest of the house.

    Woven modularity.


    FOOTBRIDGE


    The staircase ends with a footbridge. Concrete at first, it allows a physical passage from the car park to the forest. It also provides a link between the constructive logics of the two environments. In fact, consisting of a series of interlocking elements starting from a quadruple central rail, it contributes to the philosophy of the car park, focusing research on prefabricated elements. The footbridge also takes up the motif of the balcony railing, thus integrating an important element of the next room.

    The structure transports - architecture connects.


    SYNTHESIS PROPOSITION


    The patchwork of plans at the entrance and its bracing, the structure of the staircase, the interlocking of the elements of the footbridge or the resemblance of the whole to a bird's nest from the outside are, at first glance, the fruit of Latin etymology. However, to reduce work at altitude, and in the future to simplify repairs or even anticipate deconstruction, we have based our work on prefabrication. All the "walkable" horizontal elements follow this method. Prefabrication can also create a form of habit, which does not rhyme with inhabitation - but that is the only difference between the two words.

    PROCESS

    PHASE 2


    Articulation and ergonomy groups have merged, and decided to focus on three main moments - the parking lot, the debate room and the berth. This double decision has caused a spatial restriction, enabling to deeper explore each part. This collaboration also allowed working on various scales, be it the relation the body has with an element, or the one elements have with each other.

    The three focal points of the Articulation team among the house.


    BERTH


    The goal of the berth is to design a comfy space near the Arve. To do so, we use a warm material : brick. Each of them is to be made in situ, using clay from the Rhône. Since bricks are accumulated as alluvium around a tree, it is a keystone of this part of the project. The work around these two elements is thought to create a welcoming topography for the body. The whole is embraced by the foliage's shadow. Bricks are also a habitat for local plants, and the berth lives throughout the seasons. During fall, foliage and bricks complement each others. The different levels respond to different levels of Arve's fluctuation.

    The seasons come one after the other, but do not look alike.

    Brick module. Joining process. Concave spaces for the body.



    STAIRS


    The parking stairs are the only land access to the other rooms. This entrance marks the beginning of an architectural promenade, an introduction the general articulation of the house. After a first contact with the protostructure, the stairs integrate you inside a terracotta fountain. The water literally envelops the inside. Thus, there are two main moments when walking through these stairs. Firstly, you experience the house from the outside. Then, as the water envelops you, you will experience it from within - and start feeling the interiority of the house.

    When it rains, humans desert the site. But the structure keeps living.


    PHASE 1


    The groups have changed - and so has the project. The four studios (Abenia, Bondu, Treiber and Wegman) are now working on the proposal of previous group 6. This week, the articulation team focused on the skin of each part to better understand the new environment.

    Adding a reflective layer on the verticals makes them disappear. The importance of horizontality expands.
