Final Presentation of the first phase of our work titled "Measures".
Casting the void: where strata changes
Two perspectives per individual (interior and exterior)
Monge perspective of a building on site (Tour Bel-Air)
Here we are. The final presentation of our work after a moth. It’s the occasion to visualize the whole work of the studio by sticking the metal rod into a white cube. It creates the volume of the different buildings and levels of the area.
Proceeding with the last Monge projection that we had to do, we added a level of details to the part that we're casting, just as if you were looking through a magnifying glass. It helps to notice the difference between the different frames.
We wanted to built our two perspectives in a way to help us visualise what you would see if the casted volumes were really floating in the air.
The inter perspective is about two meters high on top of the roof of the Fnac building and for the exterior perspective, you might be standing on the Geneva road and watching towards the tower.
After casting the section of the bridge, we had to choose three moments on our strip were the architecture changes, three stratas that we wanted to concentrate our work on. By casting and representing them on a Monge projection of the facade that we have chosen with segmented lines.
First, we've taken the escalator which connects the roof of the Fnac and the entry of the shop. The fact that it is a "fluid" moment was one of our arguments, comparing with the two other ones. And connecting two levels of the place represents well the adaptation of the architecture to the landscape of the town.
Secondary, the column. Due to the historical background of the column that we’re watching in the theatrical part of the semester, it was the opportunity to make a dialog between both. It isn't only the portico of the "factice main entrance", it has a little balcony on the frieze.
And finally, the different windows. The different windows are a module that structure the whole building in the height and the width. The facade is made of different windows with different frames on different levels, point/thing that we wanted to underline.
the different moulds and casts
Here is the final presentation of nearly one month of work. In this exercise we present differents strategics parts of our "working area". The goal is to describe at best the architecture of a spesific place of Lausanne: the Flon, but more precisely our choosen facade. We separate the facade in three differents stratas wich can help the understanding of the facade anchor in this area called the Flon. We also present five drawings which are: one final Monge projection of our choosen facade, two inside perspective of our strip and two outside perspective.
