ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
The exhibition “From the Effect of Architecture to the Knowledge of Architecture: 20 Years of Yazgan Design” consists of the following elements:
- 12×2,5m. length 1:5 system section on glass
Yazgan has designed inner gardens in many projects of different typologies recently. This approach, “integrating nature into architecture” as one of our design principles, has been shownin the exhibiton with a detailed section drawing, 12m long and 2,5m height, in 1:5 scale, emphasizing Yazgan’s knowledge-based approach. In this system drawing, which created with the idea of “inner gardens instead of walls”, it will be shown how trees can separate spaces in a Project. The transparent nature of Glass, which is the tool of this, as well as the technical and theoretical knowledge of its other properties, can be transformed into a knowledge-based installation.
43 models produced by Yazgan in its own office will be exhibited.
- Project Boards
42 selected projects of Yazgan will be exhibited as panel boards.
- Book – Brochure
“Flexible System Design” is Yazgan’s first book and it will be launced in parallel with the exhibiton.
- Smart Project
‘Smart Project’, developed by Yazgan, is a pioneering research, production area and information platform that aims to integrate architectural project production with the information age we live in, and will mediate in synthesizing this information with the project. It is based on participatory and collaborative working culture. It aims to develop project production methods locally and universally, and to produce knowledge in all areas of the architectural project with a knowledge-based architecture. In this direction, architectural building elements have been researched and listed with in a systematic way.
- Digital screen and World map
A screen on which drawings, sketches, diagrams, videos, and photographs of Yazgan’s projects and buildings will be displayed with map showing the countries and cities where Yazgan has made projects in the world will be in this section.
