[ What

]

A concept of integration of different functions
and services.

/ Containing and Communicating as the main
features

/ Containing in terms of storaging general
personal stuff + additional useful tools

/ Communicating in terms of selfexpression +
getting in contact with other people’s interests
and needs.
[ Why ]

From the observation on the spot some crucial
findings came out.

/ Exixstance of private little ‘home sweet home’
areas in hidden places

/ Domestic use of lockers

/ Informal occupation of public space

/ Undervisibility of the messages posted on
billboards due to organisation and location
[ Who ]

‘The Nomad’

/ Not for a specif target, but for an attitude

/ A nomad is a wanderer with no fixed residence
who roams about getting in contact with other
people

/ The C3 user has his own stuff, but he actually
spend most of his time in a collective place and
he needs a way to feel more comfortable and
safe in an unpersonal space

[ Today / Tomorrow / Future ]

Before C3 With C3
/ Each locker looks the / Each locker is
same creating a boring personalised and creates
scene at the Campus a little ‘world in the world’
/ I have to carry around all / I can storage all my stuff
my stuff in hand or with in my box and carry it
my one case easily wherever I need
/ Groups of people arrange / Working in public space
themselves on the floor becomes easier and more
to work in public place and comfortable
/ Messages posted on / Informations are easier
billboards are always a accessible and clearly
mess organised
/ No way to have a warm / Quality of ‘lunch time’
meal brought from home experience is improved
Future Developments
/ Standardisation of all
locker’s system in the
universities
/ Lockers might be bought
and become a souvenir
/ Billboards will turn in
to digital screens and a
software will manage the
organisation
/ Locker stations although
in public spaces not
necessary related to
accademic institutions
