    The goal of our chapter was to recreate a complete timeline of the material cycle of the house from material sourcing to deconstruction, including the prefabrication, the transportation, the assembly, the disassembly and the recycling of the components of the house.

                                                                                                                             week 1

    During this week we started imagining the storyline of the construction of our house, by doing a first timeline of the travel of materials that would be used to build the house.

    During the second week, while the house evolved from last week, we started studying more in depth the prefabricated elements and the components that are required to build them up. We also continued building up the storyline of the construction of our house with a comic strip, and gathered all of the pieces of the house to measure the volume they would take in a truck.

    The third week, the house continued changing. We studied it in more details, by regrouping every material of the house in order to start obtain facts such as its price and the weight its components. We also organized our site of the Galpon in Geneva into several working spaces.

                                                                                                    Week 1

    For this new phase, we started by building a house made out of several rooms from our four studios. We enter our house through a debate space from the parking lot. We chose to create the debate space with the same layout as the house of commons. It is space that allows one to circulate, but that can also be a place to sit and discuss. In addition to that, this room is overlooked by a roof allowing to reverberate the sound.

    Following this space, there is a transition space leading onto two paths. One of them follows the curve of the slope, and takes us to a room located just above the water. This close contact with nature, offers us a beautiful view.

    The second path, however, follows in the opposite direction. By climbing you access the theatre space. The spectators's back would be facing the view on the water, in order to direct his focus on the show. 

    Our house can be summarized by two main axes : the first axis runs along the parking lot and ends at the bottom of the slope. The second one follows the opposite direction. It starts at the bottom of the slope and ends up at the theatre.

                                                                                                    Week 2

    From the parking lot in Geneva, we enter our house. The room we first encounter, remains the debate room. Its ceiling, however is nowhigher, and creates an atmosphere that welcomes more guests, as it is more aerated and comfortable. In opposition to the next space, the debate room isn't constrained by the trees, neither is the ceiling. However, this following room, a transition space follows the position of the trees, and meanders around and in between them. Its ceiling follows the same rule. The ceiling is made out of planes of cloth that are positioned as blanket on top of trees.


    This transitioned space connects to the nature, but also to the next two rooms. It leads to two paths. One of them follows the curve of the slope. This pathway take the form of the hill with its obstacles, leading to a small relaxation area facing the Rhone. The second path, whatsoever, follows in the opposite direction. By climbing you acmes the theatre space. It is sheltered space, with planes surrounding the sitting space. It enables the spectator to enjoy a convivial space focused on the show. These planes also enable a better sound of reverberation and a full protection from the wind and other disturbances. 

    So to summarize, we can say that this week we modified our project in a way that it fuses completely with natures, adapts itself to its curves and obstacles.

    Those two weeks ended with a review, during which a house was selected amongst those that were imagined by our four studios ABTW. Until the end of the phase HOUSES and GARDENS, we worked on the house from the group number 6.

    "Morning Sun" - Edward HOPPER

    Image Sun Mar 15 2020 13:45:45 GMT+0100 (CET)


    It is 8:00 in this morning of spring. The sun is slowly rising in the sky and creates this orange and warm atmosphere.

    My friend and I arrive at the top of my building, and enter the room with our coffees to go and croissants.

    The entrance is created by a roof, quite low, so we have to squat and bend ourselves in order to enter the room.

    The low ceiling prompts us to sit down against a confortable wooden backrest, on my right. 

    The roof doesn't create any shadow, but it protects us from the cold morning breeze and eventual rain.


    This place will always remain my favorite, because it is isolated and intimate. I feel free, above everything. It is a peaceful and cozy place for a nice breakfast and a cup of coffee, that announces a good day.  


    WEEK 1

    During this first week, we had the instruction to use 4 square plans of 30x30 cm to create our room. To put my ideas on paper, I started with sketches and drawings for experimentation and research.

    My room can accommodate a family of 5, for example for breakfast. This is why I decided to orient my room towards the east, so that its occupants benefit from the first warm rays of the sun, while drinking a cup of coffee. My piece is located on a corner of the protostructure, and on its very top, so as not to undergo any shade.

    WEEK 2

    This week, I accentuated the idea of interiority and modified my entrance, while maintaining the East orientation of my room. I also changed the location of my plans, to create a seat and an eaves. In order to visualize better my ideas, I used the model (cardboard plans) and the drawing.

    WEEK 3-4

    During these last two weeks of the ROOMS phase, I completely modified my plans by reducing their size and changing their function. The orientation of the seat is now towards the East unlike that of week 2, which was positioned towards the Northeast.


    The circulation differentiates itself from the space where people come to sit and drink a cup of coffee, which is made of plaster.

    On the bottom left picture, we can expressly see the first vertical plane on which the roof rests. This plane is made up of strips of wood which (from bottom to top) are spaced more and more to invite to observe the view from this side and let in the light.

    On the left, there is the nesting of my plan, (which serves as a seat) in the roof & on the right there is the roof, with spaces that are used to accommodate a vertical wall (space on the left) and the seat (the 3 spaces on the bottom).    


    WEEK 5-6

    This week, using Rhino, I decided to modify the surface of some of my plans. I positioned the wooden bars on each plan, in order to indicate the way to circulate in my room. You should move from the most spaced bars towards the bars that are closer together. I also added a small space to put your cups of coffee and croissants!

    My room is a space, which I wanted to be simple, nearly acetic, for the morning. This is similar to Japanese culture where you eat by sitting on the ground, with a low ceiling. The measures I have chosen therefore invite us to lower ourselves and sit down.

    It is a pleasant space where you feel comfortable, well insulated, but still aerated.
