        Plans for Laboratory
            Info Aula 4.
             John Hey
            August 2007
             Observations
• Aula Info 4 is a strange shape.
• There is room for at most 28 workstations.
• We need to have a control room containing
  the server and desks.
• It seems to be the case that screens
  between the subjects can not descend from
  the ceiling but must be integral to the units.
           Outline of Plan
• There will be a Control Room.
• There will be five banks of units
  (workstations) – 3 on one side and 2 on the
  other. Each bank will be curved.
• There will be two big screens, one at each
  side, and two ceiling-mounted projectors.
• The decoration of the lab needs to be
  discussed.
             Control Room
• There will be a control room on the right
  when entering.
• It will contain shelving and desking and the
  server for the network.
• It should have a wall – the bottom part of
  which is wood and the top half one-way
  glass.
• I do not think it can have a door.
           Individual Units
• For each subject we need an individual unit
  consisting of a desk and screening.
• The desk shape is important.
• The CPU is to be stored under the desk.
• The computer (flat-) screen should fold
  away into the surface of the desk when not
  in use.
• The screens are crucial.
        Screens in the units
• Each unit needs two screens – one in front
  of the subject and the other on the long
  side of the desk.
• The screens should be light (in weight),
  translucent and of an agreeable colour.
• The should slide up and down and should
  be 75 cm in height – almost invisible when
  down and screening the subject when up.

   Juxtaposition of adjacent units – right side




Note that there is no gap between the units – because the shorter side of the units is
                          at an angle of around 95 degrees.

New wall top half with one-way glass so that people inside can see
     out, bottom half opaque. Server located under desk.
             What is needed
• 32 (we only have room for 28 but we will need
  the others later) individually built units – we
  need a carpenter. 32 chairs?
• New screens for the workstations (preferably
  with built-in video camera).
• A server, two projectors and two screens.
• Software (and wiring) for the local network.
• Wall and furnishing for the Control Room –
  desks, shelves and chairs.
• Painting and decorating.
