A Study of Air as a Structural Element

”There is something mystical about air that triggered my curiosity. I imagined, like Lebbeus Woods, that the city of Air must be the ideal place everyone craves to find. A place of openness, calmness. A place of myths, thought and reflection.”

Theatre on the Rails

‘Istiklal Caddesi, in the charming neighbourhood of Beyoglu in Istanbul is becoming the ultimate urban stage set. The dead theatrical space of the Emek Sinemasi is now embodied through characters that roam the city and create new situations, new accidents, and at times disruptive performances. These characters are for the most part not actors, in the traditional sense of the word, but structural and mechanical agents that once were immobile infrastructural components of a site, which no longer exists. ‘

Technical Studies Architectural Association 

 

The Technical Studies program at the Architectural Association forms a collaboration with the material demands of individual unit agendas.

In the Third Year, lecture coursework, workshop experiments and technical ambitions are synthesised in a detailed Technical Design Project (TS3). Students conduct design research and experiments to explore and resolve the technical issues of the main project of their unit portfolio.

Above is a selection of drawings from the TS High pass winners of 2014, where each individual has successfully materialized the technical ambitions and concepts born within the intimacy of their unit.
