bi’bar - The Bar Workshop

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.

Herkes İçin Mimarlık Derneği – HiM (Architecture for All Association) (2011, İstanbul); is a platform where student volunteers and professionals can come together and bring social problems encountered in the country and the world in a creative way to the agenda, raise awareness about these problems and act to produce solutions from the fields of architecture and design.In urban and rural areas, it wants to contribute the formation of an architecture field, which works for and with society, by encouraging participatory mechanisms that are lacking in the design, planning and construction processes of the projects.

Yelta Köm (architect, researcher, co-founder of Herkes İçin Mimarlık – Architecture for All) has been leading numerous workshops and projects on urban commons since 2007. In 2018, he was the associate curator of the Pavilion of Turkey at the Venice Architecture Biennale. His curatorial concept was based on weekly changing international workshops with students. yeltakom.info
