    Initial task and first ideas


    Our task was to create a spacial interiority with four planes. With that in mind I started searching for a purpose:which purpose will my room serve ?

    As we got more details about the placement and surrounding nature around it, I decided my room was going to be punctuated by sunlight. But what kind of living space would that be ? Then I realized our eating schedule was always somewhat close to sunrise, when the sun is at it's zenith, and sunset. My space was going to be a dining room. So I started sketching.

    I made a few sketches and created two horizontal planes and one perpendicular vertical all with the humain scale in mind. I now had to find how my oblique plane was going to be.

    Creation of the model (1:10)

    Challange for the week 3 : define where my project will stand in the protostucture


    Image Wed Mar 18 2020 15:16:09 GMT+0100 (heure normale d’Europe centrale)


    The ground is made of wood. The idea of making a "parquet" seems to be a good choice to creat the condition of "ground". His oriotation follows the direction of the south.

    My project will take place near the ground, in the first floor of the protostructure. So people can have an easy acces to it.

    The wall will be filled with wooden panel to make a contrast with the floor.

    I decided to work again on the position of my plans. Their location did not seem very convincing to me.


    Image Thu Mar 19 2020 11:21:51 GMT+0100 (heure normale d’Europe centrale)


    My research was done through small models and small sketches. One of the plans, the one on the left, has been advanced so it strengthens this corner condition. Thereby people inside my space will not be bothered by those who are outside. This creates a condition of perpendicularity with the lower plane. (the ground)

    The diamond plane has been moved in order that the corner of the upper plane and the corner of the diamond plane touch each other.

    These two adjustments allow the project to be clean and precise.

    The roof plan has also been changed. He is now more tilted. This reinforce the condition of firmness in the center to leave only the possibility of seeing to the left or to the right.


    Image Thu Mar 19 2020 11:18:27 GMT+0100 (heure normale d’Europe centrale)


    one of my first sketches, here we can not see the diamand plan. 


    At the back (north) the spaces have also been changed. There was 50 cm on the left and 35 cm on the right, a place to walking and another place to sitting. Now those two spaces are 60 cm, enough space to walk on it and pass from one project to another.


    The protostrutre was also moved.

    Its new position, one hand in the center of my space, allows the visitor to lean against it. It therefore becomes an obvious place for any visitor who enter in this space.

    On the other hand, the passage of the protostructure in the end of my space close the view so that the observer can focus on the opening located on the left and right, (sunset and the sunrise) and not on what is in front him.

    So finally, I can say that this space is for a student or adult who work all day. This person is probably around 25-40years old and has time to come only in the evening or in the morning.


    At the end of week 2: I was thinking about the materials that could go with my project. Wood seems to me a good solution. It reminds me of the wooden chalet in the Valais. A peaceful place that could match with my place.

    Two vertical planes guide you to enter, sit and exit the room. 

    Two oblique planes meet: an invitation to sit, an opening of the landscape.

    Plan, elevation, section, and detail.

    Scale: 1:20


    Trimming: Rethinking of the importance that every part of the 9m2 surface gives or takes to the room.

    Points: defining the particular points where the four plans should meet with each other and the protostructure. A dialogue between the planes and the protostructure.

    First attempt of the wooden frames that will hold plaster slabs.
    Challenge for next week: the wooden frame is to continue the dialogue with the protostructure and not merely rest on it, the protostructure is our topography. The planes work with the protostructure, the frame and by extent the plane rests on the protostructure as much as the protostructure rests on the plane .

    The slabs will come to rest in the wooden frames. Only before entering and as you exit will the structure be exposed.

    Giving a materiality to our room, approaching human scale. The interior of the room will all be concrete slabs in 1:1 and all plaster in 1:10.

    Pigments: exploring plaster's texture and color when in contact with graphite.
