Interior Storage Wall

Activities outside the classroom are pushed and packed into the aisle. The interior wall works as a spatial division and furniture storage, this is to allow total freedom for creative movements inside the classroom. Although there are no physical boundaries inside the classroom, subtle changes in flooring material enables a wide combination of spatial arrangements using the rotational furnitures. This design of the walls evolved around a central sphere that mimics the movement of people in, out and around the entrance. The sphere cuts away both the interior and exterior wall forming a rotational door that controls access to the classroom or to the storage aisle.

Design Strategy In conventional building arrangements, mechanics are often hidden. The focus for this project is to reveal mechanical operations and design starting from it. Conceptually, space is divided into 3 interrelated sections: Mechanical space Office space Waste Waste is the museum sector in the building. The idea is to trap and display building waste as the exhibit. Using grey water and excessive heat generated from mechanical operations to produce different microclimates in individual exhibition cells. The temperature and humidity ‘exhibited’ physicalizes for visitors the relationship between what we do inside a space and what we produce.
