Project Name：Smart Cube+ / Fast-Assembling Covid-19 Prevention Olympic Village
The impact of the novel coronavirus has affected the world. The 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games will be postponed for one year. Many sports industries have stalled and cost tens of billions of dollars in economic damage. So in this context, we designed an athlete’s village to prevent the spread of the virus and to minimize the impact on the lives of athletes. The whole building is made up of fast-assembling structures. It is designed to be divided between living layers, anti-epidemic stratum, and athletic training layers to reduce crowd risk and maintain the necessary training for the athletes themselves.
This project is connected by three spaces from the inside to the outside, with the inner floor serving as a living space for the athletes. Athletes have to go through the middle layer of the epidemic prevention stratum to achieve the effect of epidemic prevention by means of artificial intelligence and APP guidance. Athletes should arrive at their training venues reserved within the appointed time.
