Diploma project, ECAL 2021

in BACHELOR GRAPHIC DESIGN

by Julie Ryser


Dupliréalité aims to immerse us into reproductions of places of life that are essential to an individual’s existence. The cities explored include La Chaux-de-Fonds, Lausanne and Renens, which have a direct link with my own reality.


This research is based on a conceptual analysis of duplitecture, a recent architectural movement that replicates and relocates famous buildings. This analytical treatment takes place in a fixed medium, i.e. a book, a lasting object that has the power to cross the ages like a building and that comes to life through its materiality. The project reconstructs the process of a duplitect; thanks to the proximity of today’s media, everything is within reach and distance disappears.
