Group 06 { Waiting }

Redefine transition spaces of waiting // Design and manufacture an installation

Atelier: Contested Peripheries

Day one- Visit to the tram station to see where we would be installing our 'waiting' installations.
Posted 8 May 2014 16:26
Session three involved presenting our proposal to Transport for Greater Manchester. We talked to them about how we felt the people used the space, and how we can use their movement to create an interesting visual. We are yet to hear the winning proposal.
Posted 7 May 2014 21:37
Session two consisted of thinking of ideas that would enrich the space and transform it in to an interesting an interactive environment. We decided on a proposal that uses coloured lights to utilise the movement of the people passing through the station, using mainly involuntary participation as time to interact with an installation is limited for the commuting public that pass though the station.
Posted 7 May 2014 21:34
Session one included visiting Manchester Piccadilly and becoming familiar with how people move through the space and what existing interactions they have to the site. We then started to think of ideas that would suit the people traveling through the station.

We visited the site and then came up with the idea of introducing music into the station.
Posted 7 May 2014 12:24
Day three the proposal, here we are presenting our design plan to collaborators from the network rail. it was a little nerve racking but fun all the same. Feedback from the collaborators was very useful
Posted 7 May 2014 12:06
Day two, the final proposal for network rail, the idea of the design is to reflect light, but its main purpose is to draw attention to the existing architecture, as commuters transit through the space the special tape acts as a mirroring 3D flooring.

Day we are busy designing the final proposal for the tram line at piccadilly station. We searched online for materials and different techniques, here I'm editing our final perspective image, whilst my team members finalise hand drawings to be photo edited.

Session 2:
Working on the A1 proposal sheet, including: a Photoshop illustration, hand drawing diagrams, materials uses and the estimated cost etc.
Posted 7 May 2014 00:23
Session 1:
Separated people into four small groups and discussing possible ideas.

We (members of Group 4) found that there is not many people notice the space itself, especially the wonderful ceiling above and they always rush to get on trams.

So we decided to do something highlighting as well as appreciating the ceiling (structure) of the space to make people “wait” a minutes to look around the space that they passed by everyday.
