We also took part in the conversation series that the team started with the theme of experiencing different spaces through the architects during the pandemic process. Within the scope of the talk, discussions were carried out on the experience of the trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina and the human desire to explore and space fictions.

AN INTERESTING STORY: ROSE ISLAND
 
(Fiction and reality are interpreted together.)
 
Rose Island is a story where thoughts and dreams come true. It is a 400 m2 island platform that was created by a ‘crazy’ engineer and his friends off Italy in the libertarian environment of the 1968s.

GENERATING A PARADIGM THROUGH FORM

I think some structures, like some art items, are reading silent but noisy manifestos to the world where they stand. In this way, they make the user / audience connected beyond admiring them. It is like a sentence in which we recite the implied words over and over again, a commitment brought by the desire to experience every detail, every ray of light on it, every color and every trace without leaving a single overlooked meaning.
