Changing a space: Research and Inspiration

Below is a range of examples that I have found of how a space has been changed/ transformed. Some of the examples are more sculptures or installations than others. I really like the idea of  making a space ‘uncomfortable’ for people by placing things around them that’s unusual for that space. This could be seen as positive/negative when referring to F block as a ‘transformative space’. I especially love the first two examples. The first example because it looks at altering a space at a higher level rather than just on the ground or walls and its all still a very useable space for other things too. The second example because I just simply love how they have picked a material unusual for the space and not normally used in that way and just covered the whole interior  with it. Clicking on each image will open up a new tab with a link to the website each one of these were found and where you can read more about each of the designs.

After seeing some of these examples I can imagine transforming F block  in a similar way. Instead of the giant inflatable balloon covering the room like in the second example, I can imagine just covering part of an area with sheets that have some sort of design or marks on them. Perhaps tie dye or even just the foot marks and prints left by the people who use F block. That would almost tell a story in itself about the people who use F block.
