Still together

How can we connect with each other in a 1,5 meter distance society?

The problem with the current situation is that we do not have the furniture to fill the gaps of 1,5 meters. If we want to stay apart, the terraces, parks and streets will be empty. What if we make the furniture bigger, to fill the gap? Its like the ‘bijentafels’ in Amsterdam, giant furniture, to feel you’re still close to each other at the same table.

This gives the idea of this bench, where you can sit with two persons at the time. The mouth will stay on a 1,5 meter distance to each other, but you can connect with your feet. There is a low risk of infection here; feet are also touching the dirt on the streets, without people getting infected. The form of the bench creates cozyness, as it is easy to speak with each other. Also, it gives protection from the wind.

Assignment 3 Pelle

Have you ever looked over the borders of dakpark?

To create a stronger bond between the Bospolder Neighbourhood and the M4H area. A direct link by creating a stair is impossible to make, but other connections can be established. The requirements of the design of this ‘pavilion’ is that it is a place where people meet and enjoy the view on the M4H area. The place must lift a person higher up.

In short:

  • Create a visual connection
  • Aspects for different groups
  • Easy to climb up
  • Multi-usable
How to create a bond beyond the barrier?

The area where the pavilion can be placed in is the highest part of the Dakpark.

The pavilion will have a strong visual connection by adding activities that work together with enjoying the view.

This pavilion can be build up out of several parts. These parts can contain, swings, stairs, sports equipment or all at the same time. An example for a multi-use pavilion is the Xarranca Pavilion in Barcelona, designed by Urban Think Tank.
