the 1,5 m society-proof connection

If we can’t connect on a physical level, we can try to make a connection on other levels. It can be on the level of movement, as in this beautiful example of the Wip-Wap at the border of Mexico and the U.S., by artist Ronald Rael.

Connections through a different medium than the physical touch

An Acoustic connection

– Inspired by my neighbor’s initiative of the concert

An acoustic connection either above the ground or underground, to have a chat, to connect with your surroundings, or just for fun.

Guusje Assignment 3

Selected Location | Bospolderplein

To get a feeling for the square, I inserted the maximum dimension of the pavilion as the pink blocks (so in the end there will only be one). So as you can see, the pavilion could easily ‘disappear’ into the big size and emptiness of the space.

The square already has an uplifted platform, so one possibility for the ‘public stage’ will to make use of that platform and highlight it. The pavilion could interact with the stairs perhaps.

The big open space between the sports courts, could also offer a more central location for the pavilion.

Starting points for the pavilion:

  • should either way be accessible from all sides and not close off one part of the square (connecting different parts of the square)
  • should function during different times of the day (also when ‘the stage’ is not in use, as furniture for example)
  • People should not feel too exposed
  • Houses different cultural activities
  • Should be flexible in use (and program)
  • Easy to move
