iWeb, Delft University Netherlands

The above image is the structure of the "spaceship the WEB of North-Holland" by Ir Kas Oosterhuis of ONL Architects. It is an artificial environment designed to enhance "real-time protospace." Interaction and collaborative design is enhanced in an environment where simple actions cause alternative effects. For example, a voice command might suspend gravity. This experiment seeks to find the effectiveness of communication in such a technologically responsive world.

This spaceship structure has a reflective red interior with a yellow luminance at the top. Yellow for circulation and red for stimulation. It was first built in 2002 and the Delft University of Technology tried it again in 2005.
