Clay Pattern

A first experiment design process, through various forms, emerging with spatial qualities, constructive questions...

Working by study of clay cubes, then the elaboration of a path in relation to the topography of the cubes, and finally the establishment of a context/site applied to this topography.

Pattern design from an original cube, after several rehearsals and deformations, we get an assembly of two skins (indoor and outdoor) which form a "building" with its own architectural characteristics.


Surface irregularities from clay cubes form different profiles, placed end to end, will be cut transversely to visualize changes in altitude.

Each track corresponds to a different section and the elevation lines are then transposed onto the partitions to create a melody based on these changes.
