Rethinking the Factory
Rethinking the Factory
The relationship between contemporary architecture and the people who live and produce in it is perhaps one of its biggest questions.
Milli Reasürans Art Gallery in Maçka is hosting a photography exhibition about an award-winning architectural project. The exhibition, which consists of photographs of Emre Arolat Architects’ (EAA) İpekyol Textile Factory, which won the Agha Khan Architecture Award in 2010, can be seen from February 7 to March 17.
The works in the exhibition, titled simply Fabrika (Factory), consider the İpekyol firm’s concepts of fashion and image from its inception within the capitalist economic system and the phenomenon of the factory, tracing EAA’s concept of architecture and architectural practice in the medium of contemporary architecture. Beyond being a mere center of production, when planning the venue the factory was reconceived together with the people who live in Edirne and come to work in it and designed as a human and aesthetic living space.
The works in the exhibition focus on the question of the relationship a building forms with the people inside it during this intellectual and production process and what the building gives back to them.
