Défis techniques

L’architecte-bâtisseur aime à prendre des risques et composer des bâtiments véritablement uniques. Pour obtenir le résultat souhaité, il repousse parfois les limites des produits et des matériaux employés et s’essaye à de nouvelles formes d’expression. C’est ainsi que l’architecture avance et progresse. Pourtant, l’architecte-prestataire est aussi contraint par des éléments extérieurs (implantation du bâti, conditions climatiques, décisions de la maitrise d’ouvrage) qui l’obligent souvent à revoir son approche du projet. Dans les deux cas, il a besoin de solutions techniques originales, capables de s’adapter à ses besoins et contraintes. Des solutions composées sur-mesure, qui lui permettent d’aboutir dans sa démarche et de passer outre le défi technique, pour qu’enfin, l’ouvrage prenne vie.

Vents violents, températures négatives et chutes de neige. Des conditions climatiques extrêmes, pourtant habituelles sur les sites de remontées mécaniques. A Val Thorens, la société d’exploitation, la SETAM, a choisi de rénover trois d’entre elles.

CONDITIONS EXTRÊMES
Remontées mécaniques Val Thorens (France)

Automne 2015. Afin de rendre plus confortable l’attente des skieurs patientant aux remontées mécaniques, la station s’engage dans un vaste chantier visant à couvrir trois d’entre elles (situées entre 2800 et 3000 mètres) d’une enveloppe protectrice. Un projet qui améliore son image mais optimise également l’utilisation des remontées. “A chaque épisode neigeux, la neige s’engouffrait dans les gares ouvertes et s’accumulait dans les fosses des quais d’embarcation. Le personnel devait alors interrompre la circulation des cabines et déneiger. C’était une perte d’exploitation pour la station”, commente Hervé Vieille, du bureau d’études HV Conseil. Pour pallier cela, la station missionne une agence d’architecture qui propose alors un projet… pour le moins original. “Habituellement, les couvertures des remontées mécaniques sont faites dans des matériaux basiques, à faibles coûts et opaques. Ici, l’architecte souhaitait apporter de la transparence et de la clarté pour permettre aux skieurs de voir l’environnement extérieur” ajoute Hervé Vieille. Séduit, le maître d’ouvrage accepte le pari : mettre en œuvre un nouveau matériau, transparent et jusque-là inconnu dans cette station : le XXX XXX.

Technical Challenges

The architect-builder loves to take risks and design truly unique buildings. To obtain the desired results, they sometimes push the products and materials they use to their limits in striving for new forms of expression. And thereby architecture advances and progresses. However, the architect-contractor is also constrained by external elements (the layout of the building, climatic conditions, project client decisions) which often force the project to be reappraised. In both cases, original technical solutions need to be found, capable of being adapted to the new requirements and constraints. Customised solutions, which enable the architect to realise their design plans and overcome the technical problems so that the project takes wing.

Storm-force winds, sub-zero temperatures and heavy snowfalls. Extreme climatic conditions, yet common at ski-lift sites. At Val Thorens, the operating company, SETAM chose to renovate three of their ski-lifts.

EXTREME CONDITIONS
Ski-lifts Val Thorens (France)

Autumn 2015. In order to provide greater comfort to skiers waiting in line for the ski-lifts, the ski resort is undertaking major construction work to cover three of its lifts (situated between 2800-3000 metres) in a protective envelope. The project aims to improve their appearance but also to optimise the ski-lifts' use. "After each snowfall, the snow funnels into the wide open stations and piles up in the wells below the embarkation points. The staff then have to interrupt the cabin's circulation to clear the snow. It was an operational loss for the resort", said Hervé Vieille, from the engineering consultancy HV Conseil. In order to alleviate the problem, the resort commissioned an architecture practice to propose a project...which was at the least original. "Usually, ski-lift coverings are made from basic materials, which are cheap and opaque. But here, the architect wanted to bring transparency and light to allow the skiers to see the landscape outside", added Hervé Vieille. Convinced, the project manager accepted the bold plan: to install a new transparent and hitherto untried material in the resort: XXX XXX.

Texto de origen - español
Las Ofrendas, como las conocemos, iniciaron durante la Colonia. Esta costumbre se mantuvo relativamente oculta por parte de los indígenas y mestizos, quienes comenzaron a integrar elementos de la religión católica a sus ofrendas.
Las ofrendas entonces ya no se colocaban en las tumbas, sino en el interior de una habitación, sobre el piso y una mesa –de ahí que se le llame Altar de Muertos.
En 1955, XXX XXX comenzó con la importante tradición de colocar Ofrendas y Altares de Muertos, no sólo dedicados a una persona, como Diego Rivera, sino para rendirle homenaje al trabajo artesanal de México.
Desde su apertura en 1994, el Museo XXX XXX invita a sus visitantes a revalorar la tradición de colocar Altares y Ofrendas de Muertos. Esta exposición temporal es una de las más emblemáticas del Museo.
Nuestra monumental exposición de Día de Muertos se divide en dos: un Altar de Muertos con los elementos tradicionales: velas, copal o incienso, flores de cempasúchil, pan de muerto, frutas, alimentos, bebidas, dulces y calaveritas de azúcar.
Así como una exposición de calacas de cartonería, que año con año cambia su temática, presentando personajes muy representativos del Museo, como la Sra. XXX XXX siendo pintada por Diego Rivera para “Retrato de La Tehuana”.
Nuestras Ofrendas también pueden escenificar otras latitudes, dependiendo de las muestras que estén exhibiéndose en el Museo

En el 2013, las calacas se transportaron a París, para hacer referencia a nuestra exposición "Obras Maestras del Museé de l'Orangerie" y con calacas de cartonería que representaran a los artistas presentes en la exposición.


● La Muerte: Desde Nuestros Ancestros Hasta los Artesanos (Preview link for context here)
La Muerte en nuestras colecciones de Arte Prehispánico y Popular
Arte Prehispánico
La colección del Museo XXX XXX cuenta con alrededor de 800 piezas de arte prehispánico, algunas de ellas, relacionadas con el culto a la muerte.
La tradición del Día de Muertos tiene sus orígenes desde el período prehispánico, cuando diversos grupos mesoamericanos acostumbraban enterrar a sus muertos acompañados de algunos objetos que, según sus creencias, les serían de utilidad en su otra vida: alimentos, ropa y objetos personales.
En nuestro acervo de Arte Prehispánico, contamos con piezas alusivas a la muerte, como esta urna funeraria, perteneciente a la Cultura Zapoteca.
Asimismo, tenemos una colección de 40 perros xoloitzcuintles hecho de cerámica, originarios de la Cultura de Occidente
La colección de xoloitzcuintles del Museo XXX XXX los representa con diversas poses, que hablan de su relación con el hombre.
“Xoloitzcuintle” proviene del náhuatl “xólotl”, que significa “muerte”, e “izcuintle” que es “pequeño”. Este “pequeño Dios de la Muerte” tenía como función ser el guía de los difuntos en su camino al Mictlán (lugar de los muertos).
Los xoloitzcuintles en barro, que también fungieron como vasijas de uso funerario y que datan de hace más de tres mil años, fueron encontrados en tumbas, pues se enterraba a los indígenas junto con estos perros.
Los perros xoloitzcuintle, originarios de México, son parte importante en la historia del museo. Diego Rivera le regaló una pareja a XXX XXX, y desde entonces se conservan los herederos de esta especie en los jardines.
Arte Popular
Dentro de nuestras mil piezas de Arte Popular, podemos admirar algunas con relación a la muerte.
Traducción - inglés
The Ofrendas (often referring to both offerings and the altars on which they are placed), as we understand them, commenced during the Colonial period. The custom remained relatively hidden by the natives and mestizos, who began to integrate elements of the Catholic religion into their ofrendas.
The ofrendas were no longer placed in the tombs, but inside the dwelling, on the floor or on a table - hence they were called the Altar of the dead.
In 1955, XXX XXX began the important tradition of placing Ofrendas on Altars of the dead, not just dedicated to one person, like Diego Rivera, but to give homage to Mexican arts and crafts.
Since its opening in 1994, the XXX XXX Museum invites its visitors de re-evaluate the tradition of placing Altars and Ofrendas of the dead. This temporary exhibition is one of the most emblematic of the Museum.
Our monumental exhibition of the Day of the Dead is divided in two: an Altar of the dead with traditional features: candles, copal or incense, cempasúchil flowers, pan de muerto, fruits, food, drink and sugar calaveritas.
In addition an exhibition of calacas (papier-mâché skeleton figures) which changes its theme year after year, presenting figures who are very representative of the Musem, such as XXX XXX being painted by Diego Rivera for "Portrait of a Tehuana woman"
Our Ofrendas may also dramatize other parts of the world, depending on the displays that are being exhibited in the Museum.

In 2013, the calacas were transported to Paris to reference our exhibition "Masterpieces of the Musée de l'Orangerie" with papier-mâché calacas that represented the artists featured in the exhibition.


● Death: From Our Ancestors to the Artisans
Death in our collections of Pre-Hispanic and Popular art
Pre-Hispanic Art
The collection of the XXX XXX Museum has around 800 pieces of Pre-Hispanic art, some of which are related to the cult of death.
The tradition of the Day of the Dead is rooted in Pre-Hispanic times, when several Mesoamerican groups used to bury their dead accompanied by various objects, which according to their beliefs, would be useful to them in the after-life: food, clothes and personal objects.
In our archive of Pre-Hispanic Art, we have pieces that allude to death, like this funerary urn, belonging to the Zapotec Culture.
In addition we have a collection of 40 xoloitzcuintles dogs, made from ceramic, originating from the Western Culture.
The collection of xoloizcuintles in the XXX XXX Museum are represented in seveal poses, which depict their relationship with man.
“Xoloitzcuintle” comes from the náhuatl “xólotl”, which means “death”, and “izcuintle” that is “pequeño”. This "small God of Death" acts as a guide to the deceased on their route to Mictlán (place of the dead).
The xoloitzcuintles in clay also served as funerary vessels and date back more than three thousand years, were found in tombs, as the natives were buried next to these dogs.
The xoloitzcuintles dogs, originally from Mexico, are an important part of the history of the museum. Diego Rivera gave a pair as a gift to XXX XXX, and ever since their descendants have been kept in the gardens.
Popular Art
Among the thousand pieces of Popular Art we have, we can admire several that are linked with death.
