TU Delft Fall 2017
OnTheGo asks the students to design a housing block capable of accommodating the different needs of each of its temporary residents and maximize the space to arrive at new levels of both compression and expansion. But we want to achieve this without sacrificing the specific requirements of its users, OnTheGo is a tailor made house on the move. We want to test the capacity of architecture to evolve over time, in real time, as newcomers arrive and old comers depart, as users coincide for a few minutes in rush hours or to explore the potential of time gaps for expansion and compression. The project is interested in finding intelligent and innovative solutions for ever-changing environments and maximum customization and adaptation within a highly-constrained envelope. The constructive solutions for facilitating real time spatial transformations will be part of the core of the proposal.
