ROLE-PLAYING GAMES
"Rooms of Requirements"

CONCEPT 

Collective houses were initially built with pre-defined programs, but human life does not only have predetermined functions. Human needs change continuously, arising continuously in personal life and in the society to which they belong.
‘House of Needs’ is a game inspired by a group home and the space that holds needs. Participants are people living in the KTT and are responsible for suggesting the need to use that space. Each play has a different social context according to history, players propose the need to use outdoor space according to the corresponding social context.

PREPARING GAME'S MATERIAL

GAME RULE

Participants (individual or group) draw lots and choose the room that meets their needs. For each social context, participants propose their own needs - which can be based on real phenomena or can be imagined needs to use the space. Each space containing needs will be represented by color blocks/drawings/models and connected to the original space. Spaces containing needs must extend at right angles (top, bottom, front, back) and be adjacent to existing spaces. The needs will be presented to all KTT residents and negotiated and voted to allow the use and construction of outdoor space. The ‘neighborhood group administrator’ is the discussion coordinator. The winner goes to who owns the most space after 4 rounds.
