Scaffolding

Vertical and horizontal : touching.

We started off planes questioning how two planes interact. They either create a joint or they merely touch. Following our ideas from planes, we decided to continue with the idea of the two planes touching, not creating a new three dimensional junction, but a two dimensional limit. For this, we experimented with various materials to see how they would join.

The plan was to use the protostructure to orient a vertical and horizontal plane, the vertical meeting the ground. For this, we started studying the topography of our space. During this research, we realised that our ground is very rich and itself orients multiple planes. The two such planes that most interested us were the planes extending from two intersections of the three main topographical elements. These two planes intersect in a unique line, that itself has a unique vertical plane traversing it. Using this plane, we could translate upward the topography; the plane elevating the ground.

To show the interior of the intersection, we chose to cut the two planes. Indecisive of the final material, we started to map out the planes with cardboard.

Elevated on our (implied) vertical plane, we can find our topography suspended from the same height proportionally to the higher traversal parts of the protostructure to that of the lower ones.

Finally we chose white cardboard reinforced by a wooden frame.
