Architecture Zero


Model, Image , Lausanne, 2005

Architecture Zero means reducing it to a minimum, horizontally and vertically, producing a filigree structure that suggests rather than imposes. It is the zero degree of architecture. An isotropic grid which seems uniform but which creates enough differences to suggest new things, life, evolution, surprise, diversity ... It is an autonomous architecture detached from its program

This project was developed as part of the end-of-cursus diploma from the Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne. the chosen subject was a school of architecture, repetitive stages where the students could work, eat, sleep ... with the starting point that the schools of architecture designed by architects were less appreciated than those which were in buildings not designed for that.
