The goal of our chapter was to recreate a complete timeline of the material cycle of the house from material sourcing to deconstruction, including the prefabrication, the transportation, the assembly, the disassembly and the recycling of the components of the house.
During this week we started imagining the storyline of the construction of our house, by doing a first timeline of the travel of materials that would be used to build the house.

During the second week, while the house evolved from last week, we started studying more in depth the prefabricated elements and the components that are required to build them up. We also continued building up the storyline of the construction of our house with a comic strip, and gathered all of the pieces of the house to measure the volume they would take in a truck.

The third week, the house continued changing. We studied it in more details, by regrouping every material of the house in order to start obtain facts such as its price and the weight its components. We also organized our site of the Galpon in Geneva into several working spaces.
