Lou Rais – A Continent to Be Shaped

Diploma project with Gilles Gavillet, Nicole Udry

“A Continent to Be Shaped” is a journey through alternative teaching in architecture. The book is an atlas from the archives of EASA, an alternative school created by students in Liverpool in 1981. Forty years of workshop data from authors across the continent have been systematically edited in a non-chronological journey, revealing the students’ local ideologies and issues. No architecture is shown in order to stimulate the reader’s imagination, the archive is revived and extended with laser-cut silhouettes then modulated into an umpteenth construction. Prix BCV

An addendum for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Workshop with Roosje Klap

During this workshop, all students were asked to write an extension article for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which together formed an addendum for this historical text. It has formed a new part of the temple that hold and protect our humanity. To provide contextual background to the work, students had been reading and discussing an article each day, followed by a daily topic. By the end of the week, an extension of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was celebrated in the form of 20 flags and a collaborative video of 20×20 seconds.

Identité Visuelle

Studio project with Jonas Wandeler

The international typographic style, also known as Swiss style, is a trend in graphic design developed in Switzerland in the 1950s by Armin Hofmann and Emil Ruder. It emphasizes simplicity, readability and objectivity, using sans-serif fonts as the main and structuring element of the design. Among the corporate identities and logos emblematic of the international style are American Airlines (1967, Massimo Vignelli) Fiat, (Jean Reiwald and Armin Vogt), or Swissair (1978, Karl Gerstner). (source: wikipedia) One of the effects of this very widespread (and rather rigid) style is that everything ends up looking the same. During the next semester, you will give a brand an identifiable personality, in the figurative sense of the word.
