Behind the Rolex Learning Center, some protostructures have been built to allow each studio to test a part of their project. This assembly test is a very informative step to check the measures, the functioning of the structural system, the time that we need to built it, ...
The following pictures are ordered by the different steps (1-5) for the mounting.

We develop some tools for cutting the pieces. There are a lot of identical pieces, specially for the cladding, and making these tools is a saving of time for cutting them. We make four cladding tool and 16 shims at different lengths. At first we put a shim at the bottom of the cladding tool. Then we place the timber of wood that we want to cut till the shim. Finally we cut the overcoming part.

After "l'état des lieux", we realized that the direction of the slopes asked a lot of structural complications. Thus, we decided to redirect the project how it was initially : a slope to each side with plateforms. By making tests we decided to have 3 plateforms (A-B-C) and two slopes with various percent slope that provide the experience of walking/sitting/standing. The plateform A has a function of a bench with 50 cm of height and 40 cm of seat depths. The plateform B has a height of 80 cm. Other than the connection with the plateform A that it provides, 2-3 people can sit on it. By the high of (50 cm, same as A), the plateform C really has a role of connection between Lupi's and Chassot's project : we can go down through the second plateform of Chassot to our plateform C, and then again to Lupi's ground.
