new design proposal for the central camp: the hottest coffee shop of the world

the hottest coffee shop of the world

the design proposes a field of

interactive pavilions for the central camp. the

pavilions will produce and serve beverages to the visitors. as each pavilion will serve a different drink, small variations to the technical specifications of each structure will be required. however, the design concept will be very similar for all. in this document, the coffee pavilion will be of interest.

the

first system identification

01.a,

is formed by a linear assembling of 6

identical components of the same angle and same length.

through

this ex-

periment the shringing and extending limitations of the system are tested. the breaking point is marked for each assemly. the aim is to identify the more flexible system and the strongest one.

for the experiment, physical models were used, in order to get an accurate material and system behaviour. then, a digital model for each one of the configurations was developed in rhino. there, forces were applied and deformations as well as values were extracted.

from

the results, it can be argued that the longests lengths (9cm) had more

flexibility, while the shortests (5cm) were stronger but unflexible. from the whole series, the strongest system in terms of shringing was the 30°_5cm and the most flexible one was the 60°_9cm.

initial physical tests of the system (01.a) provided important results

regarding the systems behaviour. as the strongest system combination was formed by the smallest angle and the smallest component length, that should be placed at the foundations of the bigger design. on the other hand, the most flexible system was the one with the biggest angle and the longer

component length. that would be placed at the upper parts of the structure.

the design which has as a principle the helix compination, has been parametrised according to those outcomes.

extending the system

the first helix design has been developed in a digital parametric model. then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reaction to forces was examined. initially a force starting at the upper end of the helix was applied, which had a vertical direction, upwards. that caused some paramorphosis to the system. then a second examination followed, where gravity forces were digitaly applied to the helix. here the stiffness of different materials was also taken into consideration. the diagram above shows how the system has been breaked down.

the

design of the new central camp requires interaction between the visitors

and the structure. as coffee (and ice) are the only two things on sale at the festival, the participantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behaviour changes a lot, becoming aggressive when

it comes to pay. the concept of the new proposal is to create communication for the two systems, where one should evaluate their actions in relation to the reaction of the other system. moreover, the coffee pavilion will provide gifts to the visitors at the end of the festival.

reference project_nespresso battery

vienna designers mischerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; traxler made batteries from 700 used coffee capsules to power clocks installed in the window of nespresso austria during vienna design week. the installation uses aluminium in the capsules together with strips of copper, coffee grounds and

salt water to make batteries. six pots linked together power a clock, while the whole installation would run a small radio.

the energy for the movement of the sweep hands is powered by 17 simple, self made batteries. each battery-block consists of used old aluminium capsules, coffee grounds, strips of copper and salt water.

in this mixture between a soil battery and a salt water battery the

aluminium functions as the anode, the copper as cathode and the salt water as electrolyte.

the concept of the design is that the structure of the pavilion will produce coffee itself. through a series of sketch models, different ways to embed the coffee production to the spiral have been tested. the principle is that a filter bag will be hold withing the structure and water will go through it.

a single spiral that rotates along itself was developed. each spiral structure has 100 turns. each of them will accomodate a coffee bag. the design of the single spiral is controled by a variety of parameters that enable its deformations.

the

initial spiral is then been rotated to form a

pavilion. the number of turns determines the amount of coffee bags that can be hosted at the pavilion.
