  2. 2. 0INTRODUCTIONBASIC CONCEPTThe Digital Library needs a physical footprint for the We have identified eleven basic types of modulesinput and output of digital information. that can serve most of the functions we envision are MODULES: needed.Our team has focused upon creating the 01 Collaborateinfrastructure for the input of physical, audio, and Each module can vary according to the need, 02 Scannervisual information into the digital realm, and for budget, and particulars of the functions intendedthe transfer of that digital information back into for it in any given location. For the purposes of 03 Audio Record + Remixphysical form of various sorts. We have conceived this study, we have chosen to represent them in 04 Video Record + Remixof a number of modules that will serve to support three sizes; ‘minimum’ ‘Standard’ ‘Maximum’. Each 05 Displayor contain the equipment needed for the transfer ‘size’ is designed to correspond to different levels 06 Printof the digital information. These modules are of financial capability, as well as frequency andbuilt with a flexible system of components that quantity of use. In addition, they can be customized 07 Hardware Checkoutcan be designed digitally, transmitted to any to easily to respond to local needs. 08 Informationlocation, and fabricated using simple tools and Noll & Tam Architects collaborated with Matthew 09 Digital Designmethodologies. The size of the forms allows them Williams Design to create a sense of identity 10 Book Bindingto be fabricated from readily available standard through bold graphics and signage. Thus, a methodmaterials such as plywood, MDF, plastics, metal, or 11 Curation of interface for the digital library is introduced tocomposite materials. Our intent is that the design the public in an easiily recognizable and accessibleand fabrication techniques will be easily adaptable individual needs, and that the processes will beopen source, part of the creative commons.Noll & Tam Architects
  3. 3. SYSTEM DESIGNFLEXIBILITY: PENROSE TILING CONSTRUCTION:The system for the module’s geometry is based We have chosen to use the ‘kite’ and the ‘dart’ tile The proposed system takes the two dimensionalupon Penrose tiling, a mathematical system of shapes for Library lab. Using only these two shapes, flexibility of penrose tiling and extrudes them intotwo-dimensional tile shapes developed by Sir Roger many forms useful for creating the modules we three dimensions. Using a relatively small numberPenrose. The shapes can be combined in a variety need can be easily assembled. Constructed from of forms, a very wide array of larger configurationsof ways to create larger forms, and are particularly a minimum number of parts, the horizontal forms are possible. There are extrusions of the Dart andflexible and useful for the purposes of our project. are combined with various vertical forms to create Kite shapes at 6”, 18”, 36”(desk height), and 96” (wall tall objects, work surfaces, seating, and storage height) . Padded seating (at 18”). In addition, there elements. Several objects can be easily combined are Dart and Kite Table height units with legs. to create larger forms to serve the needed functions. kite dartBASIC PANEL SHAPESPanels shown below would be used to createthe volumetric forms.

FABRICATION AND MATERIALS: DISTRIBUTION:The individual units are modular pieces of furniture The design patterns themselves will be openwhich can be locally manufactured using widely source, using Creative Commons licensing. Unitsavailable open source tools and ‘Fab Lab’ fabricators. may be shared freely, modified, but the designs‘Fab Labs’ have become widespread throughout the themselves may not be within the past 5 years as the cost of CNC The final designs will be able to be distributed viatools has gone down. standard formats, such as PDF, AI, SVG, STLThe units may be made from whatever sheetmaterials are most appropriate to the end user.By designing the units in standard flat stock, anynumber of materials may be substituted, such asMDF, Plywood, Oriented Strand Board, as well asother composites. Units may also be modified, if theend user has the ability to do so. 1 4flat pack mallet by Vert Design flat pack mallet pattern by Vert Design chair by chair pattern by 2Noll & Tam Architects with Matthew Williams Design 3
