Scoot manual

  • With six bi-polar options the function of a building or space is determined.
  • The function or what the desired activity should be is transformed into a matching palette and its parameters.
  • Find more info regarding the parameters by clicking on them.
  • The offered palette is rather a direction indicator, open for interpretation and adaptation, depending on the socio-cultural needs and the practical situation at hand.
  • At the bottom of each palette page there are 6 linked palettes. They differ from the main palette on the page with just one parameter. Explore these to achieve the most suitable result.
  • Go to the codically opposing palette by clicking the main palette.
  • Get a random palette by clicking the code.
  • Search a palette by selecting the palette number.
  • Go to one of the 8 main palettes by clicking one of the 8 colour codes in the semantic space.
