ROOMS - Week 1

Par Melgar Luis, 01/03/20

The challenge was to create an interior space - or a feeling of interiority - with four square planes, each of them measuring 3m by 3m in 1:1. The project also had not only to fit within the protostructure, but also to use it as a whole part to help creating the space.

Here's my initial idea :

Through my project, I study the idea of a guided path for an active observer. The "visitor" would start his path bottom right and experiment different types of space throughout his path until he reaches the final place, here in the middle of the plan.

Here's two sections of my project : the first is vertical and the second horizontal.

When we're in this "room", the place is felt differently depending on the direction we're looking at. If we look south, the space widens and create a feeling of "openness". But if we turn around, the space is more compressive and tightened.

Here's a perspective view, looking north :

The wooden beam from the protostructure we see at the top left also helps creating this interior space by setting a threshold between our "room" and the rest of the path.
