My idea concentrates on the flow of people in a space. I wanted to create an efficient display but also a dynamic environment. The idea behind the concept is also to create a flexible space that can adapt to the provided site. The circle is a dynamic shape that gathers people and can be repeated into a pattern to really maximize the space.
The main idea is to generate an open space which is concentrated on the food distributions center that also helps to control the flow of people. The concentric pattern which is illustrated can be repeated many times to provide an open space area with pivotal food distribution centers.
The general grid (can accomodate 1800 people). Like mentionned above, the grid can be repeated as many times as wanted (horizontally or vertically) depending on the site. An 11 storey building can therefore accomodate more than 20 000 people. each "module" is self sufficient and can work on it's own with kitchen, sanitary, canteen space, relaxing & green areas.
Many different variables for the canteen atmosphere can be developped using the same circular/flowing organization. Acoustic panels can be distributed throughout the zones to create louder areas (fast zone) and more quiet spaces (medium and slow zones). The lighting of each zones is also very important. A more soft and relaxing light would be more appropriate for the slow zones while the faster zones need a more concentrated light.
