Space system

- Infrastructure / study of the passage -



How can a system, a structure interact with the passage ? How can it be used to create a new space ?

These are the questions we studied in our project.

The main tool we used to answer these questions is a superposition of the plans of Avenue Georgette in Lausanne and Boulevard Sébastopol in Paris with the hybrid of the scenario model. It allowed us to study the different passages and possible positions of our system. This last one is based on a grid of human proportions and can adapt itself to the slopes and grounds thanks to modular feet.

The structure acts too as a modular system creating various spaces according to the elements dispositions. The spaces created become disruptors or anomalies in the middle of a regular and daily passage and modify it by its good-will to give it a new dimension.
