project G:Main page05-12-2011
The project is an adaptable intervention. Controlled by users, the site will answer to the desires and needs of the user. This is done by an intervention able to change shape, function, appearance and experience. By enabeling the users to design the function of the intervention through an interface, they will become part of the design. In the current concept there is a option of booking, so reservations can be made for financial backing of this project. For the manifesto of this project look at the atom 7 homepage

Precedent ideas for the project:
Still in Progress: Tells a story from the viewpoint of different users and actors
The park will in the future be able to adapt to the needs of users in order to attract them. The research of Atom 7 started with a search for the future users and clients. In this second phase these validators are still contacted and their comments can be found at the link at the bottom of the page. To make sure validators become users and the project will flourish, a list of demands is used to make sure that all the demands are met. In the following pages you can find the details of the project. Validation is done by users, clients, technical research and prototyping.
Result of Phase II
For Atom 07, the creation of a variety of spaces was important, but in order to do so, the design of the system had to be developed first. The purpose of the second phase was to test and express the validity of the systems. From the start of the project, the notion of having a realistic concept was important to the group. The approach has been to design the system and mechanisms from a bottom up approach, ensuring that the design can be viable as the mechanism is working. In the next phase the results of the research will be used to make the project sensitive to the placement within the park and expressed in the socio -economical context of Delft.
The use of formal geometry (boxes) for the structure has been used to firstly understand the forces that are at play and secondly to help visualize and create the grasshopper interface. Now that this has been achieved, further development of the architectural intervention and spatial qualities will be addressed in the final phase.
