Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: One of the biggest problems with a bike is its portability. Ironic?! Right. You can’t carry the conventionally designed cycles in trains easily. It takes more than just some bend and shift to fold bikes and which is why we have a very new direction to the design with the Kit Bike. Designed to be a bike in a bag, the wheels and parts completely dismantle and pack into a backpack!

Features:

  • Built from simple twist joints and hollow tubes all mounted from one side.
  • Consists of simple twist joints that lock with aluminum hollow tubes using a specially designed key.
  • When not in use, the bike can be stowed in a stylish leather bag that is divided into 3 sections to store the 2 wheels on either side or the components in between.
  • The design incorporates 21 parts including tires, belt (drive belt), seat, pedals and locking joints.

Theatre de Stoep

Overview: UNStudio’s completed design for the Theatre de Stoep in the Dutch town of Spijkenisse responds to the current cultural invigoration of the city by merging the archetypical function of a theatre- that of creating a world of illusion and enchantment – with the specific requirements to cater to the needs of the local community. The resulting venue is designed to fortify and inspire the magic of live theatre, providing at once a place of performance, a social gathering and experience of contrasting realities.

In the design of the 5,800 m2 building, a larger and smaller theatrical space (seating 650 and 200 guests respectively), several interlinked foyers, a grand cafe and restaurant, an artist’s cafe, a VIP lounge, numerous dressing rooms, multifunctional rooms and offices are all brought together within one volume. The placement of the various elements results in a building in the form of a flower, with a large, column-free foyer forming the heart of the structure.

Furthermore, the foyer serves to organize way finding and the linking of the different programs within the building. From the main foyer, a sculptural stairway forms the binding element toward the entrances to the auditoriums, while the handrail of the stairway seamlessly molds itself into functional surfaces and furniture elements.

The theater will play host to a wide variety of performance types, including plays, opera, cabaret, musicals, concerts, and dance performances. As such, versatility in the acoustic properties of the theater space are paramount. The recent rapid development of software used to control acoustics made it possible to engineer and optimize the sound quality within the space. Thus, the ceiling elements can be lowered and angled to adjust volume levels when required, while the acoustic wall panels reflect and increase the quality of the sound for every seat in the auditorium.
