The upgrade of Afsluitdijk is an extraordinary opportunity for re-defining relationships that it can provide as interface and connector.
Rejecting to be part of the choice for a fixed structure, we propose a TEMPORAL OBJECT that, anticipating and waiting for the final transformation of the dike, could be quickly activated in order to help anticipating the vision of a renewed infrastructure as a more complex attraction.
We create a mechanism able to produce and manage new relationships with the IJsselmeer.
Thus we propose not only an attractive object – the Motherboard – aggregated to the dike, but a SYSTEM composed by a immobile terminal and several floating islands, movable and small sized.
Thanks to the mobility of the secondary elements within the lake, with such a system we achieve two goals: to create a new reciprocal relationships between activities and users and to elude the physical-relational limits of a permanent settled building to a preference for an extension of the playground, able to be stressed, upgraded or squeezed.
