A project that stemmed from the initial and honorary research of the site of Maison Louis Carré, situated in Poissy, France.
During my time abroad, myself and my colleagues were given the special opportunity to study in great depth the Finnish designed home, Maison Louis Carré designed by Alvar Aalto.
The home's original purpose was dwelling and display of the arts. Alvar Aalto, a Finnish architect was given the task to create the home, and throughout, he left his mark of detail and Finnish-specific characteristics.
Our grand objective was to document every square inch of the home and property. In order to do so, we chose specific concentrations inside and outside of the home.
Together, approximately eleven of us, took as-built measurements of the architecture and existing landscape working as thorough as possible. After documentation was complete, we traveled to Helsinki. where we worked together to create a catalog of information.
The models that were created as a team, are soon to be featured in an exhibition in Paris, France. Cité de l’architecture et du Patrimoine, Paris, France.
