Project Introduction: Event Anatomy
Investigating three events and asking how communities can inform the production of spaces within cities.
Three events which informed my project were, Hiroshima 1945 & Metabolist Movement, Berlin Wall 1961 and Royal Wedding 2011.
I was interested in the modular capsules and flexible framework that can change over time to social and programmatic needs.
My investigations into the Royal Wedding focused on the power of media and global broadcasts which share an event and surpass any boundaries.
In contrast to this, I was interested in Bernauer Apartments, which were located in the Berlin Wall and became the location of a number of events to breach the divide.
Research into these events highlighted some factors whilst visiting Istanbul. After discovering the ruling AK Party in Turkey controls and is continually tightening media censorship.
I wanted to create an architecture to support an event that addressed this problem that restricts information from the people.
This idea evolved into an Masterplan for Camlica park, the tallest hill in Istanbul and site of TRT telecoms towers, to support rumour spreading against the AKP in order to prevent a knowledge gap.
