4 x 8: Linear

The metric ergonomics of the protagonist are used here to determine widths, heights, and volumes of datums and surfaces, peculiar to the activity being carried out. The standardised daily routine of 8 hours sleep, 8 hours work, 8 hours recreation is broken down into a more realistic linear routine of the day. The plan and section shows replicated spaces to correspond with repeating activities, forming the basis of a series of prototypes within the ‘linear’ typology.
There were many different possible configurations of the linear typology. Not all were able to be explored in this testing, we instead chose 16 of the unit configurations.
