In October 2009, Kollision joined a team consisting of 3XN, Hotel Pro Forma, DGI Huse & Haller og Orbicon/Leif Hansen for the competition ’KU.BE’ sponsored by the Municipality of Frederiksberg, Realdania, and the Danish Foundation for Culture and Sports Facilities (LOA). Our job was to design a participation process and develop concepts for integrating new technologies in and around the building aimed at communicating activities in the building and motivate users to engage in play and exercise and create new communities.
The task of each team was to develop a visionary, challenging, and flexible concept for a building aimed at supporting exercise and cultural activities for various target groups of all ages. Furthermore the building should integrate interactive media creating new attractions and possibilities for the users.
The team proposed a project named ‘The Falcon’ (Falken), which created a novel framework for cultural activities and playful exercise. To explain the overall concept Kollision created scenarios describing activities from the perspective of future users. We also designed several concepts for interactive installations and a strategy for using interactive media to inspire users to create new forms of exercise and cultural activities. A team consisting of MVRDV and Adept won the competition.
