Application Deadline For The Studio For Immediate Spaces - Sandberg Instituut,Amsterdam


Application Deadline: 1 April 2015

In between the logic of constructing architecture and the design of objects, we experiment and explore the immediate space. The Studio for Immediate Spaces is a place for understanding and defining specific spaces that we live in, we work, eat, socialize, discuss, or perform in.

To explore and expand the field of the interior as a specialized focus on space that has a direct relation to their users, we include any space as a possible place. For us they are in- and outside. They are here and on the moon. They exist in our minds and are physically around us.

Our practice is to define our gestures out of which we construct the spaces we inhabit, and to see space as a circumstance to let something happen.

Istanbul’s impossibly colourful minimalist architecture, shot by Yener Torun


image by Yener Torun

Yener Torun is a 32 year-old architect who has turned Istanbul into the geographical equivalent of Aladdin’s cave of wonders. Tucked away among the beautiful Ottoman and Byzantine architecture and the blue Bosphorus are a wealth of impossibly bright buildings dominated by geometric patterns, rainbow hues and funny architectural idiosyncrasies. And through his Instagram account, Yener has been slowly but steadily documenting it all.

His photographs are more impressive than any we’ve ever seen taken for Instagram so we spoke to Yener about what drives him to unearth these gems, the difficulty of looking for the bright and the brash in a city which is largely subtle and traditional in its landscapes and the developing art and design scene in the Turkish city.......Continue Reading
