• The Circlorridor

    Par Hugo Cabaret, Stephen Bopeso, 18/03/19




    For the next phase, we took inspiration from the orbits. We liked this idea of something circular which has energy and makes us feel movement.

    After a series of tests, we realized that we weren't thinking as a room but we thought of an orbit as a surface.

    So for Rooms, we had to think of circular volume that would have a strong link with the protostructure. 

    But before finding how to make our circle we had to  find the good position on the site. 

    For that we talked about the points in the site that interested us, and we really liked the zone were all the rocks were standing in a chaotic way and we liked the fact that it was some kind of effort to walk around those rocks

    So we decided to take this part of the site for building our project

    Then, we wanted to have something circular or elliptic to remind the orbit, and then we had the idea of tilting our circle, so that we could walk along the rocks, go onto our rooms and then go up above the water to have a view of the whole lake.

    This drawing shows where our project is put in the site.ROOMS-tc-cabarethugo-201

    Next step was to find a way to build a walk above the rocks and the water, and what we found interesting was to have two different systems on holding the steps, one system is composed of shrouds, and we used this system for all the steps above the rocks, but once our walk was above the water we used poles. Using small steps as we did, it gives you at first the feeling of being oppressed between the shrouds, and once you go up and see the lake all the steps are free and it gives you a incredible view, with nothing between the walkers eyes and the view.

    Then we made shrouds so that when your are not very high yet, the steps are swinging a bit like a and we wanted to have some movement on our walk.

    So we made this room to give the walker a real experience when he walks on it.

  • Rooms

    Par Hugo Cabaret, 21/02/19

    To begin the second semester, all the studio went to Evian (19/02/2019) to measure the site that we would work on.

    It is an incredible site which offers a panoramic view of the lake. The horizon lets us discover the Swiss coast, and particularly the other site that we used : the Laviau. 

    Our site in Evian is the result of man construction between the road and the lake, and has two main parts : the organized one and the chaotic one.

    One side there is concrete blocks in forms of the letter T, that are aligned, and the dimensions of those blocks are always the same. 

    Moreover, on the other side there is a certain amount of rocks, that are juste laid there, some are moving and some are stuck between others. This chaotic disposition makes it difficult to walk on it, and we have to be careful on every steps in order to stand

  • the moving protostructure

    Par Guillaume Voisard, Hugo Cabaret, Stephen Bopeso, 22/12/18

    SCAFFOLDING :

        During the 2 weeks of scaffolding, we decided to form a group that was composed of Guillaume, Stephen and Hugo. We thought it would be interesting to work together because we all had some similar conditions, such as being at the edge of the water and the ground, or also Stephen and Hugo had projects that moved in different ways. 

    The first step was to think about a node inside a protostructure, that could move. Our first test was this one                                  SCAFFOLDING-TC-cabarethugo-101SCAFFOLDING-TC-cabarethugo-102

      After making this test we realized that we needed to have a strong support to hold the bar in the middle. But instead of doing a similar node, we wanted to change the direction of our three axes to have an elegant node, and to do that we chose to imitate the orientation of each axes of guillaume's element, and then we began to build our protostructure.

        After making our double node at the scale 1:1, we had to work on how to put it on the site. So we worked on a system that could be fixed on the ground and that could hold our protostructure, and that allowed the movement that we made with this pivot. So we made 2 rails, one rail wich moves In the rail under it, so it has a movement in 2 directions

    Those rails are the link between the ground and the protostructure. 

        Then we made our protostructure at the scale 1:10 to see how we could multiply and link our nodes in every directions :
