Different actors are contacted to validate the design. In the initial contact, the validators were asked if they see a future for the project and if so, to give real life demands for the concept. One of the actors was so interested in the project, they approached us and asked to be closely involved in the design. The interviews is compiled in the: list of demands.

Joris van Dijk is the event planner of the student faculty group Stylos. Stylos see a lot of potential for the design, they are interested in frequent use. So frequent even that they would like to be the supervising party for the site. They will be the anchor tenant and will make use of the site between the different actors. Companies often approach Stylos asking if they need any sponsorship. Stylos will assist the project finding appropriate funds from companies for initial costs as well as assistance for obtaining materials.

Stylos's demands are mainly focused to provide space for students. A place where students can take a break from studying. Also the need for a space where students can easily connect to Stylos.

Bouwpub logo.jpg
Is one of the organisational powers of the Bouwpub, next to this she is working at the Faculty of Architecture. The bouwpub currently has a nice space on the East side of Architecture Faculty, however for events the space isn't sufficient and the views around are not that interesting. For this the bouwpub is interested to have the option to rent a bigger space close to the faculty. The nice thing here is they are a local actor as well, so would like to see the development of the site. The bouwpub has some experience in

organising events and the demands needed for social activities. They will be an expert and a user.

Is a board member and active participant of TOP (technical meeting point in Delft). Top was originally started to improve the connection between the technical aspects of the city, like univesity, students and starting technical bushinesses, and the inhabitants of Delft. Currently TOP is focused on exhibiting art, architecture and public friendly technical ideas. New technologies are not currently TOP's main priority. They have moved to exhibition art to make money and survive in this climate of declining funds. They still exhibit work of the university and have a good informal connection to different people and faculty. And one of their wishes is to have an exhibition space closer to the campus, so the inventors of the exhibited technique's can be more connected. They might be interested in organising some larger activity's which don't fit their current space.

Emiel Harmsen


In this interview it became apparent that artists are more than other users concerned with the effect of the weather and vandalism of their art. Artist are interested in exhibiting their works but only if they are sure their works of art is safe. Emial saw the potential but had some remarks on safety and durability. She also mentioned that most artist don't have a lot of money to show their art, so they will need to be insured that the exhibition is a success to avoid their art name to be tarnished.
