 +====Week 36: Bodies in Space====
 +//​with:​[[http://​​in/​f31richholland| Rich Holland]]//​\\
 +This week is about how us humans interact with the environment around us, so it's about the body and our physicality and how (static or non/minimal electronic) interventions in your physical environment change the way you perceive and interact with that space and others in it.\\
 +The week will have something to do with how you propel yourself in a space (depending on the weather) and the general area of design is somewhere between architecture,​ interaction and product design.\\
 +**NB** please bring an old bit of technology (like an old toaster or something).
 +===Transport,​ meals and lodging====
 +**NB** this week will take place on location at [[http://​|Floda31]].\\
 +**NB** bring sleeping-bags,​ toiletries and personal care stuff, (work-)clothes for 5 days.\\
 +**NB** bring your notebook, laptop, camera and such)\\
 +There is transport from the design school to Floda on Monday september 1st (as soon as we can after the start of the year meeting).\\
 +Return to the school on friday afternoon/​evening or saturday morning (depending on what you, students, want).\\
 +Food is not included but on the Friday afternoon we are planning a make-your-own-pizza type affair where we will make some doh.\\
 +There are various accommodation possibilities:​ tents can go anywhere on the grounds, two log cabins, one that sleeps two, and one that sleeps 4 and a summer house that sleeps 4. The summer house has a fully working kitchen and in the workshop are coffee / tea / toast / fridge facilities and there is also an outdoor pizza oven with running water sink. Oh and a tree house (that could do with a roof) for the more adventurous. The closest shop is about 15km away which closes at 18:00, the swimming lake is 10km away and we have a few bike that can be borrowed.\\
 +Any specific questions about all this just mail [[]].\\
