• DER WANDERER

    Par Charles Darrousez, Gabrielle Chilinski, Victor Duchastel De Montrouge, 22/04/19


    "Butterfly", "moment", "passerelle"... finding a name to the project wasn't that easy. As a team, we were all concerned that the name was not a finality, but more a way to express the project as an experience. 

    Der Wanderer appeared as a strong alternative to the previous ones. The name is a direct reference to Caspar David Friedrich's painting from the romantic era, which depicts a traveller contemplating a sea of clouds.

    The link to the painting did not appear randomly; as the maquette was growing in our hands and the drawings took shape under our pencils, the question of the site and how the project could interact with it clearly concerned us. Therefore, we all tried to imagine the project in it's real context, the one we could not catch in EPFL's atelier. To evolve in that way, we decided to re-understand the project through writing:



    Dans la continuité du quai, au loin, je regarde cet horizon qui s’étend à perte de vue, les

    vagues frappent mes pensées.

    Un pas, puis deux, le sol résonne sous ma semelle qui s’élance sur le bitume. Plus que

    quelques mètres, mais plus j’avance plus il s’éloigne... un mur, un obstacle, mon pas est

    stoppé instantanément.

    Je me confronte au béton froid, les vagues se brisent en quelques notes qui résonnent.

    Comment briser cette barrière, comment créer une passerelle entre ce monde physique et

    l’étendue qui m’appelle …











    The name "der Wanderer" came quite naturally after this interesting reflection on the essence of the site. It was not a question of building a passerelle; it appeared more as an experience, starting onto the ground, evolving at the extremity of the dock and finishing above the lake, surrounded by its vastness. 




    Der Wanderer

    Douce étendue qui frissonne de tes vagues brisées

    La dure froideur du béton

    Se mêlera à la tendresse du bois

    Et nous franchirons le seuil

    The project consists in a series of "infinite" that connects 3 coordinates: +6.6, +3.3 two areas offered by the protostructure for potential intervention...

    ...And continues in the lake

    The line, an infinite succession of points, is a minimalistic way to execute a single operation to create that link, vanishing in the water.

    The tilt of 4.5° gives an orientation towards the lake.

    Not only is it a vertical transition but also a horizontal one linking both ends of the protostructure as well as the interior and exterior.

                    Each moment of the experience gives a glimpse of the lake.

                    A narow passage adapted for one person, creating a form of infinite personal intimacy.

                   The feeling of continuity ahead could be assimilated to a slow motion diving experience into the water.
