Evolution of the first draft :
This week, the project has been evolving and getting more precisely defined.
The space is still designated to the observation of a piece of art, an activity which is often an interior experience, contrasted by the experience of the panorama around, witch is more an exterior experience due to the interactivity with the environment.
Photos of a study model and description of the program :
The observer enters on the right and is having a low point of view of the sculpture, exposed on the cornice.
The observer climbs on the second horizontal plan, helping himself with point of the vertical plan. This second point of view is higher and from an other angle. The volumity of the art piece can be appreciated.
At the end of the "walk" around the sculpture - a kind of loop which generates continuously different points of views -, the observer gets out of the space, helping himself to get down with the oblique plan. The entrance and the exit are separated to allow a fluid circulation of the people. Even if more than one person is visiting the room at the same time, the visitor is not supposed to cross other people's path. The cornice for the sculpture is always protected, by the hight or plans witch indicate to the observer to not intrude into the space where the piece lays.
