Two vertical planes guide you to enter, sit and exit the room.
Two oblique planes meet: an invitation to sit, an opening of the landscape.
Plan, elevation, section, and detail.
Trimming: Rethinking of the importance that every part of the 9m2 surface gives or takes to the room.
Points: defining the particular points where the four plans should meet with each other and the protostructure. A dialogue between the planes and the protostructure.
The slabs will come to rest in the wooden frames. Only before entering and as you exit will the structure be exposed.
Giving a materiality to our room, approaching human scale. The interior of the room will all be concrete slabs in 1:1 and all plaster in 1:10.
Pigments: exploring plaster's texture and color when in contact with graphite.
Defining a precise condition that clarifies the function of the room.
Paper model of the room that emerges from the intersections and interstices of four plans.
A room for sketching. Oriented in order to see the protostructure and rooms that entangle it.
This room inscribes in the tradition of painting the landscape at Chemin des Saules. By a precise seating condition it allows the person inhabiting it to have a 180º view on the landscape that will emerge after our intervention on the site.
Two plans intersect, an invitation to seat.
Plan and section
Challenges for week 3:
Defining a specific emplacement in the protostructure for my project.
The entrance, and possible exit: defining a path to follow.
The height of the plans, their emplacement, the importance of the intersections and interstices - giving a sense of human scale to the room.
I leave a room.
Plan, elevations and perspective
I enter a room.
Research sketches on the arrangement of four 3x3m planes.
Four plans, a room.
Exploring the notion of entrance and assigning a function to our room. Arranging the planes in relation to the person and future activity that will be held in the room.
Ongoing research on how the arrangement of four planes can mark an entrance, a path to follow and present the functionality of the room in a precise moment: an intersection, an implicit corner, an interstice.
Challenge for week two: where to sit?
