UNIT K 2018/19

UNIT UNIT KK This year, Unit K aims to explore the relationship Between humans, the waste they produce and the impact that has on the planet’s ecosystem. We want you To start thinking about the nature of ‘waste’ and how humans relate to their environment from a holistic Perspective. "One man’s rubbish is another man’s treasure"”

GIMME GIMME SHELTER SHELTER Building on the concept of ‘waste’, you will start from the bottom up by researching and scavenging useful materials from the local area. The shelter must be transportable and suitable for a nights stay. Its success will be based from the documentation from the inhabitant’s night stay.

2 SALVAGE SALVAGE Tasked with researching a specific material, it was expected to discover both its current use and use in a proposed future scenario. This research aided the design of a fixed or portable shelter that supported both the daily lives of a family of five reliant on this material, alongside the capabilities of its further harvest.

WASTELAND WASTELAND To design a tribal centre for nomadic groups to collate and gather waste. This should form the basis of a newly proposed society where waste is collected, processed and regenerated into something different, all of which occurs on site. A civic gathering space for the tribes, alongside a landmark and docking facilities for visiting tribes must also be designed.

Take things for granted, leave empty handed.� In a world reliant on digital information would we survive if it got destroyed. My project aims to archive, protect and celebrate our existence by carving the valuable data directly into the earth. This vital information could otherwise become wasted, but my project will aim to protect and eventually be the key to rebuilding our society and not setting the human race back thousands of years.

OWEN BATTERBEE Immunity Gateway of Rotterdam This projects creates a gateway into a newly quarantined city of Rotterdam, where people must receive vaccinations and become immune to airbourne superbugs threatening the lives of the public. Only then can people enter the New Rotterdam. Interactions between the patients and the public are housed at different points within the project that provide the opportunity to gain on of the three vaccinations needed.

Airpocalypse Sanctuary As Rotterdam's air quality becomes increasingly hostile, Airpocalypse Sanctuary aims to provide a haven for people with respiratory disease by proposing a health center for people to overcome their issues. Offering facilities such as programmable tattoos, learning spaces and weaving activities, this project becomes a space of self-expression, where each individual has the opportunity to share its own story.

HRISTO MARTINOV The religion Recycling Centre In a world where all worship based organized religions no longer exist, communities are looking to reuse and reevaluate all resources spent on praising these now toxic causes. Both the physical and the philosophical aspects of religions are taken into account. The Religion Recycling Centre is there as a focal point for this movement and the graphic novel “Don’t Worship, Their Warship” records the events leading up to the success of the repurposing process

The Memory Village

The memory village is an intergenerational living complex, bringing together the Millennial and Baby Boomer generations through design which encourages socialisation and aids memory function. The approach to the design is ‘salutogenic’, meaning that the architecture in itself produces health, such as through having views to nature from almost every position in the building, and an atrium which floods natural daylight into the building. The production and ceremonial eating of oily pickled herring helps to boost memory function, tackling the problem of an ageing population’s growing susceptibility to alzheimer’s disease.

OANA RADU Hydroponic Urban Farm A hydroponic urban farm focuses on providing local food source, grown vertically where plant roots are misted rather than submerged in water saturated soil, a method present since ancient civilizations. A closed loop system, that recycles and makes use more efficiently and effectively of inputs - water which is consumed in higher amounts and wasted in traditional agriculture.

The Anonymity Archive The proposal is a piece of protest architecture that provides shelter both in the physical and digital realm from the bombardment of contemporary surveillance in Rotterdam. The project is a sharing library that transforms the act of sharing in contemporary society from an arbitrary one on social media to emotive and poignant one through audio recording of people telling stories.

Mushrooms: survival mode on This project is based on the exploration of alternative sustainable methods of living, specifically how mushrooms can be used as part of a sustainable lifestyle. It is located on an island in the heart of Rotterdam. This is a mushroom burial suit factory for manufacturing burial suits which have a specific type of mushroom spawn sewn into it. This allows for a sustainable form of burial as the mushroom spawn decomposes and removes toxins from the human bodies contributing to the prevention and reduction of environmental pollution caused by traditional burial.

LOIS GEE BRITTON Lonely Bones My project focuses on designing a space which provides a solution to the neglect orphans have faced within Rotterdam both historically in the 17th century and the present day. I aimed to create a multi purpose community, providing young people with a home, a family and a place to gain new skills. However, there is a slight dark undertone to my project due to the cult like tendencies and behaviour of the community leader.

LIBBY BRODIE obeCITY There is a major problem of obesity in today’s society, yet rather than trying to fix this problem, my project looks to explore the ideals of greed and gluttony. Due to there being an exponential amount of food being wasted everyday, a society of which obesity equates to superiority reduces the volume of food wasted. My proposal is comprised of a members only club exclusively for the obese.

HOLLY CHADWICK Face Forward A large proportion of the elderly population don’t understand or trust modern technology such as the internet. Would this be different if we gave it a face? A great deal of government spending in the Netherlands goes on the wellbeing of those over 65; my project looks at how AI units could be used to relieve some of the strain put on the Dutch healthcare system. Offering both physical and mental support, with their primary function being to help store the memories of those who cannot always rely on their own. Facebook with an actual face.

Pre Cooked Life In a world where society has planned out everything for us, humans have become robots, we follow the life that has been planned for us and our feelings and emotions are forgotten along the way. The aim of this project I to make people feel again, to generate emotions in them. In order to do this, I designed an extreme sport centre where people´´ emotions will awaken.

ALISHA GUPTA Food of the Gods My project had the aims to diminish the problem of the amount of poverty in Rotterdam. This would be done through creating a way to make food accessible to everyone for free by producing a brand new food from waste food, therefore also reducing the amount of food waste in the area. Food waste from fruit is separated as this is turned into a material to make items such as clothes and bags.

Socialisation Following the consumerization and adaptation of Elon Musk’s “Neuralink” into a social media app in 2021, irreversibly connecting the brain and technology with “Neural Lace”, depression and anxiety start to spiral out of control. With Artificial Intelligence becoming more architecturally relevant in 2040, “Eve” is permitted to trial a 50-100 person humanitarian project in Rotterdam, using parametric design to improve the lives of the patients.

Over-population farming has been pushed to the limit, farmers are using strong fertilisers which are running into the water system corrupting the fresh water rivers. This causes an excessive algae-bloom which kills everything within water. The proposal of my building is to harvest the algae from the rivers and use it as a natural fertiliser in a ‘sky-farm’ design.

STEPHEN WHITE The New Natural Order. Within 50 years, diseases are expected to spread both faster and easier. This combined with the overuse of antibiotics means diseases will be even stronger. This project looks at a future in which the world is ridden by disease, one where households dread the idea of having children because of their weaker immune systems. This project explores a potential reality that would see all disease cured forever via the use of genetic engineering; where it is used to restructure the way in which children are brought to life and casts a brief glance into what a world like this might look like.
