    A "prefiguration" of our element. Our element is fixed to a pole and is here to block the access to a natural reserve. On the left we can see that it's a framwork which is as high as the barrier and is in the continuity of the barrier. On the right it is perpendicular to the barrier. This shows that our element can rotate around the fixed pole of the barrier. We can't see  on these pictures but our element would be similar as the barrier. It has the same grids as the barrier. It is composed of 8 vertical bars 173.6x0.3 cm (every 10 cm) and 5 horizontal bars 98x0.3 cm(every 30 cm). We would fix 2 poles in the water as high as the barrier which would fix our element between the two different positions we see on the pictures.

    We choose to rotate our element to create an illusion of opening such as a door but which still stop us to cross the barrier and to go to a forbidden zone. Scale 1:1

    First Sketch of our element (not finished). On the left there is a blank on which our element is standing. Scale 1:33

    On the right there is the end of the barrier on which our element is fixed. Scale 1:3

    The first two molds for our Detail. Left, negative of the rock at the base of the  barrier post. 40x25x10 cm. Scale 3:1. Right, mold of the barrier post. 20x20x20 cm. Scale 3:1.

    Our detail divided in two casts. At the forefront it's a positive cast of the rock at the base of the  barrier post. It was casted with Edelweiss plaster. 40x25x10 cm. Scale 3:1.In the background it's a positive cast of the barrier post which was casted with EPFL plaster. 20x20x20 cm. Scale 3:1.

    First positive cast of the our sill and the beach with the EPFL plaster. As we can see, the cast didn't hold up so well and broke at our sill on the left. An air bubble was also caught on the right side of the cast. Apart from that the EPFL plaster caught a good amount of details. 21x10x1.5 cm. Scale 1:300.

    Second mold of our sill and beach in negative. This time we opted for paper glued together to be more precise with our measured elevation curves. 25x13x1 cm. Scale 1:300.

    Second positive cast of the our sill and the beach with the Edelweiss plaster. The cast is thinner than then first one. It has a thickness of 1 cm. 21x10x1 cm. Scale 1:300.

    First Sketch of our sill (not finished). On the left we have the plane and different sections of our detail in scale 3:1. On the upper right we see the plane and section of our sill in scale 1:33. On the lower right is the plane with elevation curves of our sill in context with the beach on scale 1:300

    Second Sketch of our sill. On the left we have the plane and different sections of our detail in scale 3:1. On the upper right we see the plane and section of our sill in scale 1:33 in which we detailed the barriers. On the lower right is the plane with elevation curves of our sill in context with the beach on scale 1:300
