Third year project

Fall semester 2013 / Studio Ortelli / EPFL Housing

In the city of Lausanne (Switzerland) our project was to plan a new way of living in the center of the town. With the main urban reference being the Siedlung model (low rise / high density), the challenge was to respond to the former industrial area. The spine of the project is a green avenue crossing the lot and diving it in two parts: the high rise reponding to the city and the low rise related to the human scale.

Second year project

Year 2012-13 / Studio GirAUDi / EPFL

Creation space and Housing for Finzi Pasca theater company

With the main program of the project being a theater, I propose a rehabilitation of the old agricultural complex present in the area (Muzzano-Lugano-Switzerland) as well as a new Corten construction contrasting with the random aglomeration. The second part of the project was consentrated on the housing of the artists. The room’s typology separates the space in two parts, while keeping the fluidity of a single room, thanks to a slight change of level and material.

LES LIMITES DE L'HABITAT

Ce projet expérimente une manière différente de traiter la relation du public et du privé. Cette idée se développe à plusieurs échelles. (du plus pubic au plus privé) Il comprend un espace libre d'accès distribuant à des espaces privés. Ceux-ci sont à leur tour programmés avec un espace semi-privé que touche des zones plus intimes.

Year 2011 / Studio DietZ / EPFL

Vertical city / Matrix / Housing

PROJET COMMUN

What will be the new European city of 2050? There won’t be enough space for horizontal growth.

La collaboration avec Avinash se fait au niveau du palier ainsi que dans les espace semi-privés. En effet, je met à sa disposition des espaces sanitaires, des cuisines ainsi qu'un salon. En venant chez moi, Avinash déplace encore un peu les limites de mon habitat.

PLAN NIVEAU 2

With this problematic the project was to rethink the way of living. 4

A big structure called Matrix was given as a base.

120 Hours contest With Dafni Retzepi

Year 2014 / Student Contest / Oslo Point.Water / Meeting Point This meeting point is an icon, an image recognizable by everyone that stands out in the landscape. The materials used, respond to the language of a festival (metalic structures and tissue roofings). Icon and function co-exist harmonically, giving to the festival a new core, a new point of reference where to unite. This project is a water tower, interpreted for its additional function as a meeting point. Raining water is reculted by a tissue, and brought down by a systeme of four pipes, for a use of the festival or the individuals. The idea includes mineral filters for a conversion to drinking water.

Extra projects Year 2012-2013 / EPFL Vertical city / Refuge In those years of study I had the oportunity to do some extra projects. I selected two of them. The first one is a reinterpretation of the vertical city of Hilberseimer in the context of «Made in TOKYO» This work has been more theorical, with a lot of references like «learning from Las Vegas» or the gardens cities. The second one is a small project of a Refuge in the Swiss mountains. We took the concpet of fire place as the core.
