Entrelacs quasicristallins was a project intented to replace the 24 windows of the 12th Century Abbey of Sylvanès in France (see: http://www.sylvanes.com). The project, built in partnership with the company Vitraux d’Art Debongnie (see: http://vitraux-debongnie.be) made it up to the final step of the competition – but didn’t win.

This project has involved a lot of interesting research about natural light, different types of glass, and about mathematics.

PROOFS OF CONCEPT

The pictures below – from the application file – show the computer-design approach and the physical study of glass and of natural light that I developped for the project:

FOUR MOVEMENTS

My proposal was to consider the Sun as the conductor of an orchestra where each individual window is an interpreter, in a large piece in four movements, representing the cycle from birth to death and the four seasons at once.
