Creating a housing like a natural landscape, with seasons and topography allow me to design a minimalist and simple structure, in order to adapt the functions hight inside our living space area.
For example, living on the floor when it’s hot, will help us to get slight coolness from the ground and a breath of freshness air. Living upright when it’s cold, avoiding any contact with the coolness ground and helping us to live in a warm atmosphere layer. These ideas lead me to consider living space areas as strata.
To use as best the stratum space environment, I designed a simple element, the simplest structure I can, with just three contact points on each side. In other words, a simple and highly stable structure.
This element should be produced at different scale, in order to create our habitat. These different structures will help us to create different heights sitting area, working place area, resting spaces…
With the help of engineer students and the workshop foundry teacher, from ‘Ecole des arts et métiers‘, Lille, we decided to start the production of the first size module : 720 mm height. The table-size unit.
