PROVIDING OPPURTUNITIES

Irfan Meric

How much of change our built environments are able to provide for? The static forms of buildings setting the physical limitations for movement and functional form adaptations. 'providing oppurtunities' project gives a skeleton to attach blocks when needed and detach them when it's not needed. For instance, with individual house energy solutions being prefered and urban farming becoming a house need with climate crisis; it is always possible for the skeleton to grow within to provide for the change and challenges that will come in time. The project is giving space for future development.

A vision of how the project could evolve and look like in time,

Blocks are formed following the attachment-detachment principles,

The green structure that the skeleton is built, is giving space for blocks to be placed; providing for marketplaces, exhibition spaces etc...

The sunshading is a major factor for the green space on ground level.

The grid of the skeleton is oriented to have maximum light reaching to the green spaces.

Testing the maximum densification of the blocks within the skeleton and trying to see if the system could provide spatial qualities,

An idea of how to manage the block system; if a person had a block (red) within the skeleton,

how it'd be possible to request expansions or changes is explained schematically
