PLUG IN by FUSIOON.sk Architects
For this project, we approached in the motto by Trudo "Dare to be Different", on what basis we have chosen parcel with more expressive shape and place on the corner Edisonstraat / Franklinstraat. This inspired us to create a "Plug In".
Definition of PLUG IN
In computing, a plug-in (or plugin) is a set of software components that adds specific abilities to a larger software application. If supported, plug-ins enable customizing the functionality of an application.
PLUG IN in the Woensel West, has the ambition to become the architectural, sociological and spatial plugin and thereby participate in the creation of "user friendly" environment. Its architecture, which transforms materials and kinematics in the form of futuristic, undoubtedly enrich this quarter.
PLUG IN object is divided into segments of individual floors, facing in different directions, which can rotate in the given angles.
By rotation and the varying of positions PLUG IN's kinematic architecture define space and becomes its added value.
Each floor will rotate independently from other and thereby complement the space for different positions of rotation, all three floors.
Active and kinematic PLUG IN enrich quarter for new features and activities, with new views and feelings from the architectural space, it becomes "an additional module applications Woensel West." Until now a quarter with mainly residential area function has obtain identity. Enriched for the other functions.
Engaging in "Plug In" community, each local inhabitants may be through the implementation and presentation contribute to the cultural and social development of their neighborhood. Anyone can "apply the offered plug-in" and extend "the functionality of application Woensel West."
