Deeply invested in the social and theoretical aspects of architecture, always trying to materialize theories into meticulous models and drawings to bridge the gap between physical and mental production.

Especially interested in the way space constructs gender and identities.

Fascinated by Swiss post-modern design and mineral patterns.
Collector of shiny raincoats and other weird things like PEZ distributors and Harry Potter Legos.

3 MIO. m3
12/2019
Lausanne, CH
Claire Logoz

In August 2017 three million cubic meters of material fell down from Piz Cengalo to Val Bregaglia. Only one sixth of these three million cubic meters made it to the village of Bondo.

What used to be solid, to be rock, is now gravel, sand and dust. That dust was transferred by trucks to the landfill. The landfill, a stacking of dust, sand, mud and rocks. An artificial hill made from a real mountain. A new layer. Were the Alps constructed or did they happen?

The mountain is now missing three million cubic meters of material. It is in need of a restoration. Restoring the landscape to give it the same importance we give architecture. A vision of architecture as nature and of nature as architecture.

Restoring the mountain by putting the pieces – the gravel, the sand, the dust – back together. Bringing the scattered material together and mixing it with new elements to make it solid again. Plugging the volume in the mountain to make it a whole again. The artificial hill is given back to the real mountain. A restoration of the mountain into an ideal state that never existed before.

3 mio. m3, a book researching the ideal form of the mountain. A book researching the quantity, the scale 3 mio. m3 represents. A book about restauration, and many other things.
