Spacebook aims to extend the notion of an online social community by providing a user-customizable space that will enhance that community through joining and participating in activities outside the virtual world. Thus Spacebook brings together the virtual and the physical space: a phenomenon through which everybody can see the activities on the site, the users can join activities that are or will be taking place, create their new activities and (physically) link them with other activities. A new activity hive is born.
The interface design has three steps of functionality which relates to three user-types: the casual user, the advanced user and the administrator. Through this design decision Spacebook provides for the needs of different characters.
The architectural implementation uses a system of inflatables which have the advantage of being lightweight ultimately reducing the dead-loads while at the same time providing adequate stiffness and flexibility.
The user, the interface and the structure are connected by means of the architecture, the complete system. This is the link that unites all the parts involved.
