• WHAT IF THE PINBALL WAS OUR INSPIRATION?

    Par Abansir Marwan, Hayyane Filali Aymane, Wenger Yaëlle, 17/12/19

    Up to now, we manage to create a space well-grounded, according to our hypothesis of PLANES. Articulations of the wood are thought to be doable. The slats are assembled everywhere face to face and oriented, so the strongest side faces the force.

    Owh, something is happening here.



    Being critical to this space, it feels empty and it is difficult to project ourselves in it and play with the different possibilities that aren't so diverse. And here is what came us to mind. Imagine to raise some planes given by the ground, and make it traverse our inclined plane. Many planes, like obstacles, on an inclined plane, imagine a ball sliding between them and the whole become for sure a pinball game!    

    Despite the unlikeliness of this inspiration, it brings a lot of sense. Imagine entering a big empty space, a big room. If you want to chill out there, for sure you are not gonna sit in the middle, where nothing is. Imagine now a wall, a plane in the middle of this space. People will be able to sit from either side of it! If we add another, it will be possible to stand, sit or chill between them or behind one. Every new plan ads new possibilities. Planes are possibilities.

    We decided to investigate different possibilities proposed by planes to improve our first space. Those walls can follow different rules. The first and common to all our trials is that we want those walls not to be too high, because we want to build links, not to cut the space in different parts. It is now about to define what is  "too" high, and where do the planes come from.

    Imagine being a small ball sliding on this ramp. Or just being yourself wanting to enjoy the space. What would you do? How would you do it?

  • SURFACE PLÂTRE

    Par Lassus Ambre, Schwitzguébel Gabrielle, 17/12/19


    A la recherche du matériau idéal


    La question du matériau que nous allions utiliser pour notre surface horizontal nous est vite parvenue et n'arrivant pas à se mettre d'accord sur un d'entre nous avons décider de tous les expérimenter afin de trouver lequel serait finalement le plus convainquant, selon nous, en terme de complexité, solidité et d'esthétique.


    Ci-dessous les photos des étapes de la réalisation de notre surface en plâtre.

  • SCAFFOLDING PROCESS

    Par Ozkorkut Ecenaz, Solis Béroud Lisa, 16/12/19


     "Scaffolding, is a temporary structure used to support a work crew and materials to aid in the construction."

     Our scaffolding, which means “proto-structure”, is not a clean page, it has its own logic, and details. To integrate our structures with proto-structure, first we need to understand its formation. Because if we don't consider every detail it has, it will become an obstacle in the way instead of being an opportunity. And we started to built our new project by using the proto-structure and our model which we made in PLANES.

    The next thing we have to consider beside the scaffolding, is the structure of the ground. We aimed to place our project into the proto-structure while keeping in mind both the stability of the scaffolding and the form of the land.

    If we come to talk about the project, we didn’t change the formation of our vertical from the project, only the positioning. We made use of it as a wall. Our main goal was to reflect the idea of creating different points of view. What we’re trying to mean by this is, by using wooden planks to form a semi- transparent wall, we wanted to replicate the feelings of both being outside and in a closed space, thus protecting the dialogue between human, and the environment.


    The second object in our planes project was the block. We transitioned the block to be a vast façade. We came to this idea that has inspired from modern architecture – specifically Pavillon Allemand de Barcelona which was designed to “block” any passage through the site. Another source for the idea was the spaces in the plaster on the ground. The facade perfectly fitted to the space, and with this placement, the ground became an opportunity, and a way to preserve the passage, without changing any of its proper self.


    Other reasons for our inspiration from modern architecture are; its embrace of minimalism, the rejection of ornaments and finally the material revolution, which is the reason that very architecture came to be. That is another explanation for us using different materials for the construction. The reasoning behind the color choice of black for the distinct material is, the desire to awaken diverse sentiments by making use of the particularities between the same substances.


    Arriving to the diagonals and the “mouvement” aspect , which form the last part of our project, we placed wooden planks diagonally, each one having different angles to show each movement, in between the vertical and the paper wall. At the very same time, we have created the dialogue including the paper wall and the vertical, by also sustaining the equilibrium.

  • Mise en place de la maquette - retour sur le soutien

    Par Beer Eliott, Firuz Samuel, 16/12/19
    De la parcelle de terrain observée, nous avons décidé de garder l'idée de ''compression''; comme la structure choisie dans MEASURES (les fondations de la construction à Evian), nous choisissons de supporter la protostructure en la solidifiant directement et ainsi lui apporter un soutien important dans notre zone, cela sur un ''sol'' irrégulier; jouer avec maquette sur la topographie du terrain montre qu'il n'est pas nécessaire d'avoir un sol plat pour construire et solidifier une structure (comme la construction d'Evian vu dans MEASURES, qui était sur terrain légèrement incliné). Nous avons mis un ''passage'' reliant le projet de droite et de gauche et incliné les éléments de support en écho à la structure de PLANES.

    Ainsi, nous retournons vers le début de MEASURES, mais avec tous les éléments appris jusque là, il nous est possible de construire nos propres fondations; nous sommes passé de simples observateurs à ''constructeur''(mot à prendre évidemment avec des pincettes mais l'idée principale est là). De plus, nous nous prolongeons sur le projet d'à côté pour le renforcer.

    La boucle est bouclée.

  • Mettre sa structure dans la protostructure - un problème de taille

    Par Beer Eliott, Firuz Samuel, 16/12/19

    Comme l'idée général est d'intégrer le concept de la phase précédente, on peut mettre toutes les maquettes faites jusqu'à présent et étudier son impact sur la protostructure...Encore faut-il que la maquette en question soit assez petite pour pouvoir être intégrée !

    Pour pallier à ce problème il va être question plutôt de travailler avec des plans en carton et/ou analyser le terrain avec une grille (créée ici sur ordinateur).

    Il faut se rappeler que c'est le concept et non la structure directement qui doit être intégré, le problème énoncé ci-dessus n'est donc pas vraiment un obstacle.
