Experience Model van Van Gool & Wijngaarden en het ‘ thuis bij emma met kinderen aan tafel’ concept 

De inhoud van het concept is dat het een tafel is die elke woensdag klaar staat om allerlei activiteiten met kinderen te doen. Mensen lezen dingen voor aan de kinderen en iedereen is welkom om zijn of haar ideeën te delen. De tafel zelf is 5 meter lang en staat in de emma passage in Tilburg.  Het zorgt ervoor dat de kinderen graag mee gaan naar het winkelen van de ouders! Het is een onderdeel van ‘ Tilburg suprised’. Ze willen de mensen laten verassen met inspirerende en speciale activiteiten op verschillende locaties.

De vorm van de belevenis is fysiek rustig, maar tegelijkertijd druk. De kinderen die zitten daar aan een rustige tafel alsof ze thuis zijn, maar tegelijkertijd kunnen de kinderen ook druk zijn. De omgeving is midden in een winkel passage, waardoor er allerlei mensen rondlopen. Het personeel zijn vrijwilligers en werknemers van ‘Tilburg suprised’.

Voor het individu is het een zeker nieuw iets, er is weinig kennis over een tafel midden in een supermarkt, weinig mensen weten hierover, ze kunnen hier daarom ook niet veel van verwachten. Ik zelf schrok van de tafel en de huisstijl midden in de winkel passage. Ik vind het zelf wel een goed idee, aangezien het een kans geeft voor familie om samen naar de stad te gaan en de kinderen maken vrienden via de tafel. Ik zelf voelde me nog niet betrokken, aangezien ik een student ben en nog geen kinderen heb, maar de ouders en kinderen die aan tafel zaten waren wel erg betrokken met het concept.

De beleving zelf zou een memorabele beleving kunnen zijn, aangezien het een gezellig en bijzonder concept is, dat je niet vaak tegenkomt. Een concept dat je altijd zou onthouden. De kinderen zullen de bijzondere gezellige tafel altijd onthouden als een soort onderdeel van het winkelen, waardoor zij het altijd heel gezellig vinden.

Voor mijzelf was het een basale tot memorabele beleving, aangezien ik er geen onderdeel van uit kon maken, maar het bijzondere concept zeker altijd in mijn hoofd blijft zitten.

Why is it cool?

Not wasting the waste is cool because it fits with the micro trend: Everything is a remix, because waste will be recycled and combined with other stuff. And the waste will be something totally different, than you’d ever expect.

And so it fits with the micro trend no waste, because waste will become something different than waste. It will be useful, so you can’t call it waste anymore.

It also fits with the macro trend involvement, because you have to take action to make waste useful. A lot of people have to involve all those processes, otherwise it won’t be useful.

And then the mega trend sustainability, because recycling waste is good for the earth. It will let the world live longer.

Also it fits with the mega trend knowledge society, because we learn a lot about recycling and not letting waste to be useless. We learn a lot about that for the last past years.

Worlds first fully compostable coffee pod

It’s a coffee pod entirely made from renewable, bio-bases materials. The coffee pods are made to allow for bacterial to digest the materials and ensure hundred procent composition. The coffee pod seeks to a more environmentally friendly alternative to coffee pods now-a-days, that are made of plastic and which you can use just one time. Those plastic coffee pods, gives a lot of waste. So much that it could have circled the earth eleven times, last year.

coffe pods

This innovative coffee pods fits with the micro trend no waste, because the big waste of coffee pods will be over when this new pods will be used. There is no waste with this new coffee pods, because it kind of feeds the nature, by composting it.

It fits with the macro trend convenience, because theres no time to be needed to destroy the plastic coffee pods, when you’ve got the compostable coffee pods.

And then if fits with the mega trend sustainability, because it takes care of the nature and so our planet. The nature won’t be destroyed by the old coffee pods with those new compostable coffee pods. Also it fits with the mega trend knowledge society, because it’s a new kind of concept that will improve the society.

The new compostable coffee pods plays in on the value effectiveness, because it’s not just a new concept, but it’s a useful concept, what will have a lot of impact for the future. And also the value appreciation, because the nature is been appreciated. The wanted to find a solution for destroying the nature and now they set a little stap to the right direction.

Sandy city tower

A Tower in the middle of the Sahara, which will rise to a hight of 450 meters and with a floorspace of 192 acres. It’s not a normal Tower in the Sahara, but a Tower that use pretty spectacular sustainablility technology. The tower collected around 45000 cubic meters of rainwater to heat the building. This water will go underground, where a generator heats the water and produces electricity of the water. The collected water will also be used to irrigate an indoor vertical garden.

sandy city

The Sandy City tower is a trend because it fits with the micro trend social space. It fits with that trend because the aim of the building is to bring people together, so they will communicate with each other and be social with each other.

It also fits with the micro trend copy nature, because the outside of the building looks like the nature around the building. It got the colour of the sahara and the shape of the building looks a bit like a mountain.

Besides, this building fits with another micro trend named no waste, because the rainwater will be collected to make electricity, to heat the building and to irrigate the indoor vertical garden.

Then the connections between the Sandy City tower and the macro trends. At first the macro trend off the grid. The tower gives you a beautiful experience, that may be a once in a life time. Because you won’t see a big building in the middle of the sahara that often. Second, it fits with the macro trend togetherness, because in the building you meet other people. Maybe you will going to see the building with others.

At least the connections between the Sandy City tower and the mega trends. At first the logistic one named sustainability, because the building uses rainwater for electricity. Then it fits with the Mega trend knowledge Society, because this building is a good example of a futuristic design, what involves a better knowledge then ever before. And the last one, the mega trend globalisation, because this concepts change the word views and brings people all over the world together.

The Sandy City tower plays on the value efficiency, because the technology that is been used by the building is very effective. And also the value usefulness, because a useless kind of thing like rain water will become useful.
