Antithèse

Architecture, Artistic research, Portfolio

The first film I ever made. Based on the film “Wings of Desire” of Wim Wenders, we had to take a single concept evoked in the film and make a short film about it. We chose the concept of antithesis, the opposing forces that play out throughout the film (humans and angels, mortals and immortals, black and white and colors, good and evil, …). This was also part of my architecture course at La Cambre – Horta.

Par monts et par vaux

During my second first year of architecture, there was a workshop during which we (a group of first and second year students) had to make a work of art unrelated to architecture. We chose this anamorphosis that evoked as much a sensual naked body of a woman as the hills and valley. During the presentation of it, we actually put some dry ice in buckets at the feet of the “paintings” to create a misty effect that would make it look even more like mountains and valleys (which is what that title means in French) before revealing, when standing in the right spot, the whole picture of a naked woman.

This project, my second one at La Cambre – Horta, was meant to explore what makes a project. First we had to look at it from the surface of ground it would cover, second to determine where there would be a roof and where not, third to join these ground and roof surfaces with stairs, and finally to make it whole with walls, windows and doors. This lead to an ever changing project, as you can probably see.

Cabin of Le Corbusier: study

Architecture, Portfolio

At the start of my second first year of architecture, we (a group of 6-7 students) had to make a study of an existing house/cabin, designed by Le Corbusier. We each made technical and perspective drawings and a model on a scale of 1:20.
