bi'bakwerk works with innovative site specific education concepts, which aim at an equal participation and the exchange of ideas, knowledge and creativity. Our workshops are cross-generational and focus on issues arising from the immediate neighborhood.
bi'bak (have a look, Berlin) and Herkes için Mimarlık (Architecture for All, İstanbul) held a participatory workshop focusing on commons in 2018. The participants imagined a temporary cinema space that reflects Berlin's multilayered public sphere and questions the role of the architect through the participatory approach of Herkes için Mimarlık.
Now bi’bak’s cinema experiment SİNEMA TRANSTOPIA in Haus der Statistik is coming to life and we call for architects and designers to discuss the cinema foyer as a space for encounter and exchange. SİNEMA TRANSTOPIA explores cinema as a space for social discourse, is a place for exchange and solidarity, and focuses on (post-)migrant, postcolonial and transnational perspectives. The opening will be on the 03.09.2020
On this occasion, bi'bak and Herkes için Mimarlık want to invite you to a design workshop. The "BAR" workshop aims to think about a common space, develop a design vision for the cinema foyer and finally design a bar structure. The design workshop will take place on the 15th and 16th of August. Interested participants can also participate in the construction phase, namely they are welcome to help build the structure in Haus der Statistik.
