www.makerlab.info/projects/makerlab-istanbul-2012/# Adhocracy is part of the Istanbul Design Biennial. The exhibition presents a collection of some of the most relevant projects undertaken in previous years as part of the “Third industrial revolution.” Or as The Economist described it “The world of people who make things.” The scope of Adhocracy ranges from digital manufacturing and 3D printers to the re-appropriation of public spaces, open-source hardware and crowd funding. These are all important examples of how people are becoming pro-active, and how technology, and in particular the Internet, is facilitating that. MakerLab Istanbul centres on the connecting of the projects presented at the biennial and the realities of the city of Istanbul. We came to Istanbul without a clear product to develop but based on the time, tools and materials available, we want to: Like in many cities, people have been disenfranchised from the sense of responsibility towards the public space. need a lot of books, and we have just one week. contribute? 1. 2.

rad Welcome to DeZona! Urban Confessions »Blog Archive» Top 10 Design Biennale Dubai, New York, Paris arasında dolaşmaktan, biraz geç kaldım ama sonunda İstanbul Tasarım Bienali’nin iki ana hattı olan İstanbul Modern alt katı ve Galata Özel Rum İlköğretim Okulu’na gittim. Şurası güzel, bu tarzı özel gibi genel geçer yazıları bir kenara atıp, favori onlumu sayıyorum. Benim gibi evde canlı hiçbir şey besleyemediğine üzülenler için ideal proje. Kendisini türler arasında başarılı iletişimi desteklemeye ayarlı bir elçi olarak tanımlıyor. Sevgiye, bakıma, suya, güneşe ihtiyaç bitkilerin ışıklı ve sesli yöntemlerle insanlara ulaşmasını sağlıyor. Galata Özel Rum İlköğretim Okulu, 1. 9.

Les 10 livres d’architecture à lire pendant les vacances. Et non, je ne dis pas que du mal, bande de mécréants… Je n’ai pas que des coups de gueules contre les starchitectes, j’ai aussi des coups de cœurs pour des choses simples : les livres. Juste avant mon départ en vacances, avec l’aide d’amis, je vous ai concocté une petite liste de 10 livres d’architecture (théorie, pratique, roman. essai…) à lire ou à re-lire pendant vos vacances. Essayez au possible de les acheter en librairie même si celles spécialisées en architecture ferment les unes après les autres. Le choix est divers et varié : sérieux, léger, drôle, intelligent, instructif : bref un peu comme moi. 10 livres à lire. 1.

Imagine, Pedro Reyes Whilst in town for Audi’s Urban Future Initiative, we had the pleasure of taking in Istanbul’s inaugural Design Biennial – essentially a duo of exhibitions curated by Emre Arolat and Joseph Grima, for the Istanbul Found. for Culture & Arts, that weren’t afraid to challenge traditional beliefs of design, and to provoke a response through thoughtfully invited participants. If you were looking for the latest, greatest chair from the latest, greatest big name in international design; you’d happened upon the wrong place. Serving to exemplify this point, one floor of the rather charming Galata Greek School – which was hosting Joseph Grima’s Adhocracy exhibition – was largely dominated by Imagine, a recent body of work from Mexico City artist Pedro Reyes. Thought-provoking, innovative and empowering, the pièce de résistance here is that the hastily cobbled together instruments actually sound bloody good (just listen to that bass in the below video at around 4:15), and the real clincher?

For Use » News İKSV debuts first İstanbul Design Biennial İstanbul’s first Design Biennial is under way. It’s a big feature of the İstanbul Foundation for Culture and Art’s (İKSV) ongoing 40th birthday celebration, as well as an entirely new platform for presenting new designers to the world. The giant display of ingenuity and innovation is centered around the main theme “Kusurluluk” (Imperfection) and is divided between two venues: the Galata Greek School and İstanbul Modern. Running through Dec. 12, the double exhibition has two curators: Joseph Grima’s “Adhocracy” is in the Galata Greek School and Emre Arolat’s “Musibet” (Calamity) is at İstanbul Modern. Directors Özlem Yalım Özkaraoğlu and Deyan Sudjic worked with Grima and Arolat to assemble a total of 108 projects by over 300 international designers from the fields of urban design, architecture, industrial design, graphic design, fashion design and new media design. According to Sudjic, the theme of “Imperfection” is a “new take on old ideas,” he writes in the exhibition handbook.
