  • Constraints

    • Budget-production cost: 1 million

    • Amount of space available: 1st floor -3rooms

    • Certain areas are restricted to the limited of space for use and time restriction, that is, may not be a 24hr operating room.

    • Access points, entrance/exit

    • Amount of time provided to the students to work.

    • Resources such as computers, chairs, and software.

    • Other countries may not have the required technology to communicate.

Design Process (continue)

Our mission is to provide an environment

where students and faculty from all back-

grounds can collaborate and share Ideas

with their peers at Cal and around the

world. Be able to create a pleasant environment where students are able to work freely with enough space and resources at their hands. Appealing and welcoming design at the cutting edge of modern technology.

International multimedia room
International Multimedia Room

-A room where people can communicate with other people across the world and within the nation. The main purpose of this room is to communicate ideas efficiently through available technology and resources. The room will feature language translating tools from dictionaries to advance software.

-Provide a Rich Experience by integrating

high performance audio, video, and network technologies into a rich

environment for instruction, conferencing, and collaboration in order to

maximize the impact of education research not only within engineering but

also within law, humanities and social science fields.

International Multimedia Room

Detail Prototype:

  • The design of the room will have a global theme. In the center of the floor there will be a design of the world. The walls will have international flags and finished projects to encourage motivation.

  • Flat screens on the wall displaying news worldwide.

  • A a clock displaying different times worldwide.

  • 2 conference rooms to optimize collaboration.

  • Video editing software and other tools.

  • One-on-One computer conference/work centers

Essentially a map of the world that rotates within a ring which is marked by the 24 hours of the day. Each highlighted city on the map is connected to indicators which establish the international time zones.
