Responding to a decreasing number of hours spent outdoors today, Kinetic Interchange Network (KIN) is a social skill exchange hub that encourages young adults to get outdoors and become active in their learning. This new-build project near Dundee’s waterfront is aimed mainly towards users aged 12-22. Through its workshops and drop-ins the hub focuses on developing transferable life skills in three ‘zones’; practicality, creativity, and nurture. Reimagining the collective journey of discovery taken aboard the RRS Discovery ship, KIN marries the past and present, transforming a disused piece of land into an exploratory space that welcomes the local community with collaborative, hands-on coaching at its core. The design is influenced by the modularity and folds of shipping containers already on site. Materials from the Discovery are also used for inspiration including the strong wooden beams constructing the façades. The repeated linear dialogue continues through to finned beams reaching out from the roof deck and over the central courtyard. Outdoors, bold wayfinding guides people through the space, with rigging ropes providing areas to lean, sit and lie, along with a viewpoint looking back out towards the city and over the River Tay. Collectively these elements encourage people to wander, pause, and connect with their surroundings and one another.
