Design Intervention + Parameters

  Design Intervention
The intervention envisages the creation of a longer, subtler striation between the two conditions of the sand bar and the water.
The installation will not interact directly with user but create an enclosure which the user could interact with. This indirect interaction between the user and installation serves the purpose of the installation primarily corresponding to the waves and breaking them and then interacting with the other forces-human conditions, site conditions and variations.
Buoyancy – The icosahedrons aggregated together respond to the change in the forces (tides, winds and waves)
Anchorage – One anchor point is in the land and the other end is free to move in the water, responding to the forces
Patterns – The patterns are created by a constant movement of the waves, tides and the winds. The patterns in the dynamics of the components and the form of the installation itself are defined by the forces. The change in patterns is evident with time, the movement of tides and through the seasons.
Movement and stability – The movement is free but controlled with the extents of the joinery. The stationery part of the structure is anchored to the ground on the beach. This may gradually transform over a period of time.
Waves – The idea of the repeated changing forces from the sea creating different surface enclosures. The waves dissipate forces to the icosahedrons which are aggregated together. These components create the enclosure based on their reaction to the forces
Temporality – The dynamic form changes its area, enclosure, appearance, depths based on the waves. The waves change in terms of their forces and the aggregated icosahedrons change the form of the installation.
Occupancy nature – The idea is to make the installation a catalyst for change. The people do not interact with the installation; they interact due to the installation. Therefore the idea of the installation is to further blur the present boundary between the sand and water with its insertion. The human interacts with the space thus created and the installation becomes the hidden force.
Relation to the city – The beach is perceived as a buffer but it also has abrupt endings. The sand bar, instead of being a natural buffer is densely occupied. The idea of the aggregate forming the enclosure is to make the activity on the sand bar move towards the water and hence make the strip striated along its length. The imagining volume of the sand bar is broken down and spread onto the water edge.
