ROOMS - Week 2

Par Melgar Luis, 15/03/20


(Due to the sanitary quarantine, the scanning equipment is no longer available. That's why the quality of the images and sketches is going to be poorer from now and for the upcoming posts. I'm sorry for the inconvenience caused by this and I hope you'll enjoy the posts anyway)


During the second week, I continued to develop the concept of my project. Three major ideas had to be kept in mind : 

- A path : a visitor guided by his close environment ;

- The protostructure helping to mark the spaces ;

- The ambivalence of the interior space, depending on the direction we're looking at.

However, the project had a major flaw : the space on the left hadn't any purpose and therefore I had to "play" with the 4 plans to find the best position for each of them, in order to use better the space I had.

Here's the new plan I came up with, and a vertical section :

I decided to move the oblique plan to the wall so the path was clearer for the visitor. I also rotated it by 45° to create a little gap at eye-level so the visitor could see beyond the oblique wall. I also moved the northern wall to the right so it would stop at the intersection with the oblique plan. Here's a sketch I made during the conception of this new arrangement :

I also made a study model with cardboard to help me to understand the scale of my project regarding the human scale :
