Science & Tech Conjecture: Multi-Functional Space & Installations

The space could host different set pieces depending on the current group using the system.

Transitional Spaces

All sorts of people will be using this space, so accommodating and preparing for that by designing a system that is meant to shift and change. One afternoon the HYVE-3D could be used to show middle school students an immersive experience, and later that evening it may have to change into a media-creation space or a collab studio for communities around the city. There must be a way to easily and quickly shift the function of a room from one purpose to another. Ideally the process would be so smooth and intuitive that a single person and a few minutes of their time could result in a total transformation of the space. Is having all the potential materials/set-ups in the room an effective use of the space, or is there another way to house a slew of different technologies and props in an unobtrusive and clunky fashion?

Installation Design

As a consequence of the room becoming a multi-functional space, their is a need for systems that can reshape and remold the given area into sub-sections. Despite being independent from one another, it is more cohesive if each sub-space complimented the other rather than sectioning off areas entirely. One way this may be done is by the use of noninvasive installations like a railway system attached to the ceiling able to house a curtain (or anything that can hang within the load-bearing limit) that can divide the room simply. Perhaps these railways are multi-directional and there are several curtains installed at one time, allowing for the space to remain wide open or in a series of cells that have solo functionality.
