Creation of 1:10 scale model/drawings(incomplete due to sanitary quarantine)
Some changes since week 2: 1) Close parasitic spaces, so all unnecessary open spaces disrupting the activity of my rooms: stargazing, especially the great bear. 2) Establish a link between the triangular opening towards the sky and the ground (in plan). The cross created by the protostructure (which also gives the direction of the 4 cardinal points) is located in the center of the opening of my rooms (in plan).

The construction of the model in the protostructure was done in 2 stages: 1) Creation of the frameworks of the plans. 2) Filling the frames. Choice of material: I decided to work with plexiglas for two characteristics: transparency and opacity. Indeed, the plexiglass is transparent base but once sanded it becomes opaque. I created a vertical transparency (ground and roof) in opposition with a horizontal opacity (walls). The floor of my rooms is transparent which allows to add an additional activity to my rooms: the possibility of not only looking at the stars but also of observing the other projects in the protostructure. The ground is not completely transparent, some parts considered uninteresting are sanded (for example the parts of the protostructure). So I work with the same material but in two different forms.
