suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
alper DERINBOGAZ/ frederik DE SMEDT/ kamil KAPTAN/ salih KUCUKTUNA : Avant Garde architect usually has been disliked in architectural discourses as well as in the market . Even then young architects have been opening up new opportunities for practice. So we have found Jack’ s story very similar to this in the Beanstalk Fairytale. He has never been approved by his mother and his curiosity for the world above the clouds had always caused trouble for him. It was mostly his curiosity driving the whole story which is similar to the experimental designers story. We are not sure if the Avant Garde still exist but we have tried to create a free play space around the concept of the beanstalk for young architects in this four days workshop.
There has been component based self-climbing structural systems, almost like beanstalk, developed along the workshop. The hole work had to be done very cheaply and in a very short time like 4 days and without any rapid prototyping tools. So we have only used cardboards, color stickers and metal rots. The works can be seen in ITU, Istanbul, Taşkışla Entrance Hall until the end of August.
