İstanbul Garanti Galeri’de gerçekleşen sergi, Lifli Strüktürler çalıştay serisinin sonucu üretildi. Araştırma sürecini galeriye taşıyan bu sergi ile lifli ve katkılı hazır beton ile çimentolu hibrid materyal gelişmeleri, birebir deney içeren yapısal araştıma süreçleri dışlaştırdı.
A process exhibition of experimentation in the Fibrous Structures research project by Tuşpa and Ecologic Studio at Garanti Gallery Istanbul
“Fibrous Structures” is an investigation into emergent properties of complex cementitious structures that are defined through the parameterization of organizational patterns and the implementation of a specific structural logic that uses filaments as base geometry. The design research process is based on the continuous feedback between the digital and the material experimentation, between the digital parametric exploration of complex fibrous assemblages and the large-scale physical prototyping of the resulting configuration. The ‘Fibrous Room’ installation stages a phase in the design research process bringing a full scale prototype into the exhibition space. The prototype is an assemblage of fibers defined through 3D operations into the 2D pattern grids found in Islamic art within a 3D structural logic, inspired from basket ‘weaving logic’.
The exhibited assemblage is an ‘extracted’ localized component sampled from within the virtual fibrous field. The exhibition stages the process therefore the built prototype will keep on evolving during exhibition time. In fact the opening features the fibrous structure with woven fibers solely while the concrete is poured one month later. By hosting the actual process, the exhibition brings the viewer in contact with the potential effects generated by the physical properties of super fluid self-compacting concrete when deployed in this novel composite configuration. The experience involves spatio-temporal variations during pouring phases, as well as physical analogue reorganization of the structural system.>
The curator Pelin Derviş positioned the gallery as a giant slider in the timeline of the project by courageously housing in a giant 1-1 prototype pouring experiment, turning the gallery into a workshop space.
Exhibition is a continuation of the Fibrous Structures Workshops 1 in İstanbul and Workshop 2 in London.
