Flux Cocoon in Lausanne by Allegory

Category: Architecture Published on 26 Nov, 2012 Tags: , , , , ,

Installed in the heart of the city of Lausanne,¬†Switzerland,¬†Flux Cocoon by¬†Allegory¬†is one of the winning projects of the the city‚Äôs first Light Festival: Lausanne Lumi√®res, which will inaugurate on 23 Nov.¬†Influenced by its location, the project is situated at the crossing between vertical and horizontal pedestrian movements (flux). The framework is an abstraction of the knot created by the crossing of each pedestrian‚Äôs virtual trace at this precise point in the Flon area. The Flon being the city‚Äôs major transportation hub. Lausanne‚Äôs topography resulted in creating an amazing cityplan with different ground floor levels; thus it was important for Allegory to create a project visible from a 360¬į point of view.

Installed in an extremely difficult context, Flux Cocoon is a temporary shelter over the pedestrian bridge and gripped on the vertical elevators’ building. The project is a created with a primary wood structure and metal cables and 1100m of Red Led Neon Flex lights. The structure sets foot on the existing bridge structure and connects itself to the vertical building containing the elevators.
