The centrepiece of InQbate will be two Creativity Zones enabling groups of individuals to come together within a high technology environment to communicate their ideas and generate their designs.
These activity zones draw their inspiration from operating theatres associated with the explosion in the understanding of surgery, several centuries ago. Observation points will enable other groups of students or guests to see and experience the activity underway. The creativity zones will be located on both campuses and will be usable independently or in conjunction. The confluence of state of the art communication technologies and design support software tools will be employed for thought-generation activities.
Groups will operate independently and then combine through the use of information technology, sharing and developing their ideas and then separating again for further, concentrated individual generative development.
