"Volumes under the light"
First year • 2008 • Saint-Etienne School of Architecture
Creation of a 1/50th scale model and a photographic serie, showing the comparative study of the Thononet abbaye, Le Corbusier's La Tourette convent, and Alvaro Siza's furniture.
With the means of the photography, I wanted to compare Le Corbusier’s architectural intentions for the chapel of the Thoronet convent, with Alvaro Siza’s intentions on his design line of furniture for the Thoronet abbey. A small chair on which men can rest to appriciate the architecture of a monumental space, in which the body can move. The serie of photographies put forward the scale notion. The location of the chair, illuminated by the light of the colomn, gives all its sense to the beauty of a space dedicated to silence.
