IntoMotion // Reflections of Space, workshop in Istanbul

IntoMotion // Reflections of Space is a workshop that aims to explore relations between space and its parameters to create a 1:1 scale pavilion which is in constant feedback and interaction with its surrounding environment. The overall design will be developed in scope of effective/selected parameters and their projections in a spatial sense. The concepts of adaptability and responsiveness will be discussed with various scenarios and the participants will be introduced with different techniques of kinetic systems and sensors. In addition to interactive systems, digital form finding experiments will be made in order to achieve a self standing system that will allow the set of actions that are mounted.

The first three days / Tutorial sessions , will be spent exploring the tools such as Grasshopper and Arduino as well as working on selected techniques of creating kinetic systems. In Grasshopper sessions participants will be introduced to Kangaroo, a physics engine plugin for Rhino to explore form finding strategies. Later on with Arduino sessions, basic coding and tools (sensors,motorsetc.) will be explored for two days. On the third day participants will be divided into groups to develop their own concept of interactive modules in relation to form finding experiments for the end pavilion. The groups will explore kinetic systems and will investigate interaction potentials and passive systems that can be installed. A final design will be manufactured in 1:1 scale with digital fabrication tools and assembled during the workshop week.

The workshop will also include lectures on the subject by international professionals, to be announced later. It will be held in the Faculty of Architecture, Istanbul Bilgi University.
