    • RIGHT TO BE DIFFERENT Our prototype responds to "different" in the following ways: · SIMPLICITY · ORGANIC forms · PLAYFUL area · Different levels of INTIMACY · Scaled structures for ADULTS and CHILDREN · Integrating NATURE with TECHNOLOGY · Creating a peaceful space · Designing an INTERACTIVE ARTWORK · ORGANIC forms T H E M E To create a space that facilitates a healthier, unique and more expressive human exis- tence, through the liberty of spatial flow. Creating a space which allows anyone to break away from the typical busy and stressful urban life. D E S I G N I N T E N T The concept behind the proposed prototype design was based around the key con- ceptual ideas/words of:  Transition  Transforming  Movement  Flow Combining these key words, our design was formed and the phenomenological as- pects was considered as an important drive forward as it was a city intervention and the general population was our target market. C O N C E P T The need to reform from an archetypal urban setting where commotion and stress is stereotypical and the right to find your own existence and expression of views in a space within a place.

    • YUSHRA HOWELL PATRICK HORRIGAN SIBUSISO MONESE NASREEN PETERS RYNO VAN SCHALKWYK ALFRED VINYU SHEET 1 LILLE DESIGN FOR CHANGE _ PART B To create a space that facilitates a healthier, unique and more expressive human existence, through the liberty of spatial flow. Not by focusing on creating physical elements but rather by cre- ating a space for the mental capacity which allows anyone to break away from the typical busy and stressful urban life in an attempt to enforce our right to be different. "Using the spiral as a starting and exemplary form with its association to transformation, transition, movement and flow to generate an interactive, tangible art structure to enhance the social dynamics and atmosphere in an ar- chetypal urban setting to continue the flow from one space to another from a more dynamic and radical ap- proach and how it can be manipulated without obstructing flow" With consideration to the Lille context, we intend manipulating the spiral form according to the activities and functions surrounding the Lille society and what would be appropriate in this con- text. We propose keeping with the idea of a spiral-form although adapting it to the retail shops within the street of Rue de Lille but manipulating it according to the characteristics that thread comprises of. The idea is to create a space that is different to and bring across a message of the textile industry that was once and is becoming again the signature of Lille. Lille is the largest city in the French Flanders and the principal city of the Lille Metropolis . It is situated on the Deûle River near France’s border that is shared with Bel- gium. It is also the capital of the Nord-Pas de Calais region. It is an international convergence point and has a current approximate 1 million inhabitants.
    • YUSHRA HOWELL PATRICK HORRIGAN SIBUSISO MONESE NASREEN PETERS RYNO VAN SCHALKWYK ALFRED VINYU SHEET 2 LILLE DESIGN FOR CHANGE _ PART B Thread has a natural characteristic of providing texture hence the tangibility which enhances the idea of people being able to interact with our intervention. The wind passing through the thread will make a subtle tran- quil sound. The sound can also aid those who are blind as to where they are. Use of LED spotlights which will be posi- tioned to shine onto the fabric at night generated with the use of the piezoelectric tiles. The tiles absorb kinetic energy from people’s footsteps and turn that energy into usable electricity. The power generat- ed from the tiles will then be stored in batteries which will then power the LED spot lights. Our design intent was to keep the flow throughout the intervention as well as introducing “unravelling of the urban fabric” whereby we use our intervention to implement change at the heart of the city of Tourcoing with our thread public art installation which drapes across the facades of the buildings of the street to create the illusion that we unravelling the current urban wall to introduce a more dynamic and radical face with colour and light to create a different ambience as by all means, we have the right to be different. The main use of material for our intervention is thread to strongly represent the textile industry that has shaped the history of Lille to what it has become today.  Blue - water and the importance it has to Lille  Green - renowned soccer team of Lille, vegetation, landscape and urban greening  Red - textile industry and the warmth textile provides especially in the cold
    • YUSHRA HOWELL PATRICK HORRIGAN SIBUSISO MONESE NASREEN PETERS RYNO VAN SCHALKWYK ALFRED VINYU SHEET 1 DESIGN FOR CHANGE _ PART C The Fringe was developed in 2007 and has become the design centre of Cape Town attracting all walks of life from all different directions. It provides a platform for a variation of design ideas. Our site is Longmarket Street running between Harrington and Bui- tenkant Street. Longmarket Street is quite dead and is just treated as any old pathway passing through the city without any life which has resulted in many stragglers loitering around. Cape Town is the 2nd most populated city in South Africa and the provincial and legislative capital of the Western Cape. The city is famous for its harbour and relation to water, the natural kingdom, land- marks, textile industry and of course the diversity of our city and its range of festivals and events bringing in people of all walks of life, locally and internationally annually. Cape Town has a Mediterranean climate with mildly wet winters and warm summers along with a strong South Easterly wind (“cape Doctor” and “Berg wind” and the North Westerly rain. "Using the spiral as a starting and exemplary form with its association to transformation, transition, movement and flow to generate an interactive, tangible art structure to enhance the social dynamics and atmosphere in an archetypal urban setting to continue the flow from one space to another from a more dynamic and radical approach and how it can be manipulated without obstructing flow" To create a space that facilitates a healthier, unique and more expressive human existence, through the liberty of spatial flow.

    • The loom The basic purpose of any loom is to hold the warp threads under tension to facilitate the interweaving of the weft threads = form informant Weaving Weaving is a method of fabric production in which two distinct sets of threads (warp and weft) are interlaced at right angles Fixing Small stainless steel eye-bolts will be positioned and bolted into the existing walls as is required to create a certain effect with the thread. Green wall and the hydroponic system A wall plastered with different forms of vegetation and is commonly used in urban agriculture. Hydroponic is a subset of hydro-culture and is a method of growing plants using nutrient solutions in water without the use of soil. Material and Colour Represent the textile industry  Blue - water and the importance it has to Cape Town  Green - vegetation, landscape and urban greening  Red - textile industry and the warmth textile provides Our design intent was to keep the flow throughout the intervention as well as introducing “unravelling of the urban fabric” whereby we use our intervention to implement change at the heart of the city of Cape Town with our thread public art installation which drapes across the facades of the buildings of the street to create the illusion that we unravelling the current urban wall to intro- duce a more dynamic and radical face.

    • SHEET 1 I N T R A - C H A N G E LOCATION The selected site is Mowbray, which is perceived to of- fer opportunities for alternative forms of rental housing CONCEPT Intra-Change: Change from within SOCIAL INTENT To create an exemplary, transitional home that is com- fortable for individuals with current low income status to encourage them to push further in life. This in turn will create exemplary, successful individuals which re- ciprocates model communities setting a pattern for future innovative social housing typologies. SITE ANALYSIS CLIMATE VIEWS TRAFFIC MOVEMENT GREENERY PARKING DESIGN INTENT To improve the stereotypical, physical and psychologi- cal outlook of social housing by catering for the indi- viduals needs first and foremost by the design of a courtyard layout that collaborates different positive systems and the social intent. URBAN DESIGN SITE DEVELOPMENT PLANS: Sportsmans Warehouse would benefit as a primary supplier for those participating in the sports generating a larger income for them. Recreational field in the form of either soccer or baseball to be used by both the public and those of the social housing units. This will also double up as a larger platform of recreation, play and place for festivities for the social housing units. This forms as a smaller activity place than Rondebosch common. Public parking primarily used for those using the recreation- al field but can double up as parking at night for those in the so- cial housing units. Existing houses at the rear end of the site along Heath Road to be developed into small business units with accommo- dation on the upper levels. Passive design To reduce the amount of arti- ficial mechanisms used and better the internal air quality and life if the individual Light and views Each unit is designed to re- ceive maximum light, views and cross ventilation. Frame construction Allows for structural changes if units needs to be altered or added. Internal changes can also be achieved Facade Stepped elevation with rusti- cated steel cladding shows a change over time with a modern architectural lan- guage that is different to the existing social housing APD _ HOUSING AND COMMUNITY: MOWBRAY SOCIAL HOUSING S I T E D E V E L O P M E N T _ U R B A N D E S I G N - 1:500 NASREEN PETERS 209004800 S T R U C T U R A L M A T E R I A L I T Y D E T A I L I N G L A Y O U T E X P E R I E N T I A L D E S I G N

This will allow the occupants adaptability as they see fit which en- hances the experiential nature of the units as it would be laid out according to what they deem comfortable and habitable. FURNITURE As units are fairly small and are temporary homes for its occupants, the function of each room or space should be allowed to change - as goes with my concept. All furniture used will be multi-purpose which can change a bedroom to a lounge or vice versa. This will also save costs on the amount of furniture required for each unit and the maintenance there of. SCREENS All units are to be fitted with guide rails which divides the unit as shown in the floor plates. This will allow for the amount of units per square metres to change as fit to the current occupants. Again, this goes with the concept of change from within a specific unit. The screens will also allow for change of units between day and night - eg. A room used for a nursery during the day and a bedroom at night.

    • VERTICAL GREEN GARDENS A green or vertical garden wall is a non structural wall, that is either free-standing or part of a building, that is partially or completely covered with vegetation and, in some cases, soil or an in- organic growing medium. These can house vegetables for the different housing units to reduce their monthly expenditures with regards to food. NASREEN PETERS 209004800 SHEET 5 APD _ HOUSING AND COMMUNITY: MOWBRAY SOCIAL HOUSING I N T R A - C H A N G E GREEN ROOF A green roof or living roof is a roof of building that is partially or completely covered with vegeta- tion and a growing medium, planted over a waterproofing membrane. They serve several purpos- es for a building, such as absorbing rainwater, providing insulation, creating a habitat for wildlife, and helping to lower urban air temperatures and mitigate the heat island effect. These green roofs can also be used as a vegetated balcony which can serve its immediate occupants SOLAR PANELS The solar panel can be used as a component of a larger photovoltaic system to generate and supply electricity in commercial and residential applications. The installation of the solar panels will also decrease the monthly expenditures of the occupants. These needs to be positioned carefully in order to get maximum light STEEL FRAME CONSTRUCTION This form of construction is used as a skeleton of the building which supports and carries the load of the walls and floors. This form of construction allows for greater spanning distances, hence reduces overall building costs and time to construct. The exposed steel beams will be painted to give it a rusticated look which weathers over time. The frame construction also allows for structural changes of units with regards to future development of the social housing complex R.C SLABS AND STEEL DECKING Reinforced concrete allows regular concrete an upgrade in strength which lowers the amount and thickness of concrete required to span a certain distance and the costs involved in the en- tire construction. The corrugated steel decking improves strength and prevents the slab bending under its own weight which run across the short dimension, from side to side. CAVITY WALLS: MAXI BRICK The use of maxibricks for the cavity walls means that for every 3 skins of normal bricks used, 2 of maxibricks are used which saves on construction, time and costs with the same properties. Some skins will be left as facebrick and others will be cladded with weathered steel cladding WEATHERING STEEL CLADDING Weathering steel is a group of steel alloys which were developed to eliminate the need for paint- ing, and form a stable rust-like appearance if exposed to the weather for several years. The steel is fixed to the primary structure via a structural support system – such as timber joists – on which is fixed steel angles on which the cladding is then fixed CHROMOGENIC GLAZED WINDOWS Chromogenic glazing is characterised by the property of variable transmittance, is able to respond appropriately to varying external environments, so that its potential for improving the visual and energy saving conditions in buildings is greater than conventional glazing. ADJUSTABLE TIMBER SCREENS These timber screens control solar energy, and are the most suitable for windows subjected to low sun angles, in that they absorb and reflect solar energy over the entire window surface before it hits the glass. These screens are seated on roller guides which allows the occupant to change the placement of the screens based on whether more light or shade is preferred.
