"The Spectrum" Creative Art in Architecture – Materials and Fabrication Workshop. MORE THAN 45 WORKING HOURS 25 AMAZING WORKHOLIC STUDENTS MORE THAN 6100 PLASTIC BOTTLE 55 GRADIANT COLORFUL LIQUIDS.
Art, design and Fabrication Workshop “The spectrum 2016” In the intensive 5 days full time Workshop; we focused exclusively on introducing Morphogenesis, evolving art and architecture, Pattern finding and optimizing complex geometry) in conjunction with economic efficiency, environmental impact. Participants experimented with colors techniques, strategies, understanding of all stages from design to manufacturing with bottles.
During the processes of the workshop, the participants started the experiments with artistic photos, after they started to explore the capacity of the using different row materials until they used the transparent bottles to create the first artistic prototypes and then after many experimental prototypes they decided to generate the final real scale installation from the transparent bottles with colorful liquids inside.
Challenged by the time of the workshop (5 intensive days) and the number of the bottles, students worked for the final real scale installation, where real-life issues like project budget and team work and the advantage of using advanced design strategies were tackled.
