What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

les ateliers claus is building a musical dome in thousands of plastic bottles. we're only using recycled materials. in order to keep it safe we have to invest in recycled plastic rings to hold the structure. therefore we're reaching out to you: 

we’re presenting our new project called ‘claustrum’: it’s a new enclosed sound- en concertspace in the shape of a temple dome and build up in recycled/used materials. The inner shape has a geodetical shape and will function as a ambisonic en spatial sound system. The aim is to create a musical entity constructed out of materials of the past to construct a musical experience of the future, wherein an artist and audience can present and experience different forms of ambisonic compositions.

The pavilion and musical sculpture created by les ateliers claus needs 10.000 recycled plastic bottles The structure can shelter approximately 50 people. The materials needed to develop this dome are recycled plastic and mainly loads of PET-bottles.

We’re bundling different forces, such as people in the architectural field who work in collaboration with experts in the sound-technical segment. All in order to achieve a unique sound installation. This sound installation produces a continues 3D audio experience in a dome shaped space. We start from scratch and want to construct this one-of-a-kind musical space. The musical technology and the way we’re listening to music is ever evolving and changing, this fact we want to couple to one of the biggest problem in our society: the (expensive) recycle problems.

In order to fulfill this architectural and musical dream we’re collaborating with people such as Guy Van Belle from the Ipem - University of Ghent, architectural bureau OUEST and Katerina Novakova & Simon Prokop from the Faculty of Architecture CVUT Praag.

This collaboration has several important facets. There is construction of this temple-shaped plastic construction that is - according to us - never been done in our regions. Plus, next to the construction part there’s the extra aspect of letting the dome host creative and innovative musical compositions with a state of the art musical material. This construction makes the connection between a new listening experience and the question how we’re organizing our housing situation, where we organize our cultural events and of course this all in relation with the recycling issue.

Risks and challenges

to fulfill this project we need a safe structure. in order to get the plastic bottles 7 meters high without imploding, falling or other mayhem we need to invest in a structure that holds all the bottles together. this structure will be made out of recycled plastic, but costs 15.000 euro.
