Augmented Structures v1.1 : Acoustic Formations

Augmented Structures v1.1 : Acoustic Formations – Anadol and Derinbogaz

Every now and then, something special happens and instantly that is when a different notion about Architecture takes place. This work is by an artist and an architect that truly deserves mention on
 d i g i t e c t u r e . Click the play button and watch the video from new media artist Refik Anadol and architect Alper derinbogaz . The interwoven digital media and physical structure is a tale-tell sign of the potential in Architecture to always re-invent, change, surprise, and re-define the connotation of public space, and the built environment.

The artist description:

Augmented Structures v1.1 : Acoustic Formations / Istiklal Street
Architecture and (Media) Design are art forms that exist independently from one another. Over the last few years they have been growing together. They are entering into symbiotic dependencies and stimulations. Against the background of the information technologies, architecture has gained a new reality. No longer are objects or processes the constituting elements of a building. Now they are described as technical networks of communicating nodes, which balance themselves in contrived patterns.


“Augmented Structures v1.1 : Acoustic Formations/Istiklal Street” is an augmented structure, an installation by Refik Anadol and Alper Derinbo?az which is created through the use of innovative parametric architecture and audiovisual techniques. The projects deals with a new mediated space: How to translate the logic of media into architecture? In this first experiment field recordings of Istiklal Street will be transformed in to parametric architectural structure. The recordings were made by Kerim Karaoglu who also used these recordings to create an electro-acoustical composition. The project seeks interactions between space, sound, visual and light. A similar connection between architecture and media has been experienced in Philips Pavilion of Le Courbusier in 1958.
Beyond being an artwork this installation is an urban experience. The scale of surface, 2000sqm, and the dominance of the location will definitely take place in collective memory of ?stiklal Street visitors.


There will be an exhibition opening on 20th of September at 19:30 in relation to this fa├žade installation which showcases experiments of architecture- sound – visual correlations of Refik Anadol and Alper Derinbogaz.


During the night visual performance will be projected on the structure which will be accompanied with a generatively designed contemporary aesthetic visuals consisting of input data from the recordings and their transformed versions synchronized to the movement of graphics re-shaping and transforming the structure on which they are projected. The structure in turn influences and transforms the projections as well.

Design for skyscraper of 2,240 Ft that incorporates a non-linear design approach using fields of data to create architecture that investigates dynamic relationships between structure, infrastructure, materials, and users. The design generates a habitable structure stating from a basic geometric shape. It progressively evolves into a more complex assembly using mathematical operations and sequence of time. The project is among a compilation of 300 outstanding projects from more than 4,000 projects submitted from 168 countries from 2006 to 2011 selected for innovative concepts that challenge the way we understand architecture and their relationship with the natural and built environment.
