Operational Centre Driebergen

print this article

Due to the construction of a new building for the main Operational Centre in Driebergen: The OCD. In the new OCD the national switchboard facilities and other operational services of various Ministeries are housed. Due to the one percent for the arts, a budget for art became available. In collaboration with the OCD, Bureau Rijksbouwmeester (the Department of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment, the Hague / the State Architect's Office) commissioned Orgacom to realize an art work for the new building. The OCD didn't want to install a traditional art piece but instead choose to focus on communication and collaboration inside their own organisation in their briefing. The final result is:

Situational awareness
The diverse services look at a situation from different points of view. Ideally they complement each other in the analysis of a given situation. For that reason Orgacom thought of visual forms that together compose a seemingly three dimensional, but at the same time one single, image. Holograms show different colours depending on the angle under which the image is viewed. Orgacom sets out to produce a hologram that shows colours shifting from green, via orange to red, indicating the alarm stadiums. The hologram depicts a situation just before till just after an accident. The accident itself is not depicted, just the responses from bystanders. The image shows the different reactions to accidents like: shock, help, calling, communication between persons and hand gestures. The holograms will also be installed at many locations in the rest of the Netherlands that deal with the OCD.
