PROTOTYPE

The first prototypes of the "Muses" for the project of the student residence are arrived : "Without orientation, nor prioritization, five cylinders, perfectly extruded from the circle, form the volumes and become ultimately part ofthe landscape composition, following the example from the gardens of pleasure in the early 18th century."

The materiality and the treatment of the facades of each cylinder go beyond the purely functional building envelope and become narratives, recalling, in a tangible way, a forgotten story.They form a physical medium able to create and examine bridges between space and time. The aim of this artistic intervention is to anticipate an imaginary perspective, resonating with the history of knowledge. Their juxtaposition bridges with the chronology and expands the perception of the viewer.
